Otterville studio tours return
The annual Welcome Back to Otterville studio tour will be held Nov. 17 and 18.
Artists in the community open their studio doors to exhibit their original art, photography, jewelry, art cards and original mixed media pieces as well as bird houses and engraved items.
Ralph Moore & Sons specialize in birdseed and seed mixtures. They offer a variety of bird feeders including Droll Yankee, Squirrel Buster, Perky Pet, Pinebush, Going Green, Chapelwood, and some handcrafted by local artists.
Tammy Gould does creative laser engraving. She creates unique gift ideas on wood, acrylic, glass and cotton. Her home studio is on Main Street in Otterville.
Jillian and Kaleb Driedger, owners of In Bloom Designs, create handmade bright and earthy jewelry. Their designs feature beautiful gemstones and mixed metals along with exotic and recycled woods.
Sue Goossens and Mae Leonard are professional artists compelled to create with completely different styles – artists who welcome you into their home studios to share their passion.
Goossens has a large collection of watercolours both on paper and canvas. Her subjects represent scenes from northern Ontario, British Columbia and visions from her trip to Scotland.
Leonard puts her whole imaginative spirit into her acrylic paintings.
The studio tours will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. The studios that will be open to the public for the tour will be marked with yellow flags.
