Cape Bre­ton artists to be fea­tured in Stu­dio Rally week­end

Artists and crafts­peo­ple across Nova Sco­tia par­tic­i­pat­ing


For the first time in its 23-year history, the pop­u­lar Stu­dio Rally week­end is tak­ing place in the sum­mer.

Hap­pen­ing on Satur­day and Sun­day, or­ga­niz­ers say Stu­dio Rally 2015 will fea­ture pain­ters, sculp­tors, fur­ni­ture mak­ers, wood­work­ers, textile pro­duc­ers and jew­elry de­sign­ers through­out Nova Sco­tia.

“This is a week­end where artists welcome visi­tors into their homes, stu­dios, gar­dens and shops. Visi­tors get to meet artists and can of­ten see the artis­tic process un­fold first­hand,” said Paul Slipp, prin­ci­pal of Stu­dio Rally Pro­duc­tions.

This year’s 48 fea­tured artists and gal­leries in­clude many in Cape Bre­ton such as Colouratura in In­dian Brook owned by Penny Steele; Wild­fire Pot­tery, a pot­tery shop and used book­store owned by hus­band and wife team Sarah Beck and Paul Cran­ford; and Glass Ar­ti­sans owned by Wendy Smith.

“The Stu­dio Rally week­end is about mak­ing art come to life — and mak­ing con­nec­tions with artists and art­works that will in- trigue, en­gage and in­spire,” said Slipp.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the week­end, go online to www.stu­dio­, where there is a guide list­ing the artists and crafts­peo­ple across Nova Sco­tia who are par­tic­i­pat­ing in Stu­dio Rally. Printed guides are avail­able at all Nova Sco­tia visi­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tres and through all par­tic­i­pants.
