All aboard the art stu­dio bus

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

The Hamilton Arts coun­cil is invit­ing you to hop on board the art bus for a sneak peek at the city’s cut­ting-edge art scene.

The Arts Coun­cil, in part­ner­ship with The Seed­works Ur­ban Of­fices and The Cot­ton Fac­tory, is launch­ing a monthly tour of the stu­dios of Hamilton’s emerg­ing and es­tab­lished artists.

Each tour will give par­tic­i­pants a be­hind-the-scenes look at four dif­fer­ent artists’ stu­dios, al­low­ing vis­i­tors to ex­pe­ri­ence the artist at work, ask ques­tions, and en­gage in their artis­tic process. Each tour will fea­ture a ‘Spe­cial Guest Tour Guide’ to lead the tour.

The tour, spon­sored by At­tridge Trans­porta­tion Inc., is a re­boot of the pop­u­lar Art Bus Tours or­ga­nized Hamilton artist Bar­bara Milne. Milne will act as the Spe­cial Guest Tour Guide for the kick­off tour in Au­gust. The first tour will take place Aug. 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. Tick­ets are $20 and avail­able on Eventbrite.

The tour leaves from the Seed­works Ur­ban Of­fices at 126 Cather­ine St. N.
