Location #14 on the Oxford Studio Tour

And now the tour brings you around to Woodstock!  You can, of course, do the tour in any order you like, and visit as many or as few locations as you like.  Who are we to dictate how you enjoy it?

Julie has a very strong and educated sense of design and colour, which shows in her wonderful abstracts.  You won’t be disappointed!

You don’t need an appointment this weekend to see Michael’s art, nor anyone else’s on the tour!

Michael is an accomplished watercolour artist who does very nice representational pieces.  A few years back he branched out with his art and began experimenting with these large acrylic abstracts.  It’s up to you to decide which are your favourites!

Location #11 on the Oxford Studio Tour

Oh dear, seven locations left to cover and only four more days to blog until the tour this weekend.  How did this happen?

This artist is known for her depictions of the beautiful Canadian Shield, especially as it exists in Killarney Provincial Park, where she spends as much time as she can.  These are truly lovely to behold.  Don’t miss this stop!

Yikes.  Has it been two days since we posted?  So it has.  Artists have a warped sense of time, you know.  I’m sure if you personally know any artists, you’ll agree with us.  But then again, we are very busy right now getting ready for this tour!!

This location has some really interesting media – check out all of the descriptions here.  These are some things you are going to want to get a nice personal look at.  And the setting at this location is really pretty – once you cross the train tracks in the driveway, you are approaching the bank of part of a river/pond which the property looks over.

LOCATION #10

MAP Note: Railroad tracks cross the driveway.  You may wish to park in the area to the left of the driveway between the road and the tracks, for safety when leaving so you don’t have to back  your vehicle across the tracks.

Well, WordPress tells us NO ONE saw the last post.  How is this possible?  Aren’t you wonderful people all subscribing and sharing the fantastic talent in Oxford County?  We are surprised at you.  Next time we come back to post something, we are hoping you will have remedied this situation.  Artists need help you know.  Otherwise they STARVE.

Here we are with four artists again, and a great variety, all at one stop.  And you should really go there because we happen to know it is a great place and these are such nice people!  Not to mention the art is fantastic.  You will be glad you went.

Surprise!  Bet you’ve been waiting for this all day… and then went to bed.  And now it might be tomorrow.  Sorry about that, thought we had today all taken care of, but we were mistaken.  This one is worth the wait, though.  FOUR artists in one place!  These artists are not in their home studios but at the Station Arts Centre in Tillsonburg.  Some of them (like Deb, another of our tour organizing people) do their best work there though (i.e. pottery AND running the place).   This is a great bunch of artists.

We thank the Station for being our ‘umbrella’ organization!

As if you needed more reasons to get to Otterville – just outside of town there is the studio of the founder herself, and she hosts our good friend who designs the brochures and posters for the tour.  Core people!!

You should really mark your calendars now if you haven’t already (April 30 & May 1), and have a look at the map of the whole tour.

At the south end of the county is one single artist with several different styles.  You might be surprised they are all hers!  And her studio is only a stone’s throw from the lovely and historic Otterville Mill and the waterfall over the dam.

Did we mention Lianne is also the one who prepares the website each year?
