Creativity at Work
Art admirers, take note: Granville Island is home to a clutch of creatives—from glass-blowers and potters to printmakers and painters. The once-industrial neighbourhood is now artist-studio central, and many offer a glimpse of artisans at work. See glass art pulled from the kiln at New-Small (page 48) and silks being hand-painted at Alarte (page 36). Or head to Studio 13 (page 48), a workspace and showroom for three local artists that brims with soft abstracts like Alice Rich’s “Balance” (pictured). It’s an art-lover’s dream.
