10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Culture and community are the watchwords of the collective of artists who host the annual Hammond Bay Studio Tour. The work produced and shared by this diverse group of creatives confirms that the northern part of the city is about more than box stores and malls.

On May 26th and 27th twenty artists and artisans will again be welcoming the public to 12 studios between 10 am to 4 pm. All of the locations on the tour are accessible via Hammond Bay Road. Look for tour brochures which include a map of studio addresses at various Nanaimo locations.

This year tour goers will be treated to 3 new guest studios which include well-known pastel artist, Terry Nimmon and painters, Michael Tickner and Patricia Banks. A broad variety of 2 & 3 dimensional creative styles will be represented along with woodworkers, potters, jewelry makers, and metal work. Colorful road signs and red balloons help make the tour easy to navigate. All studios will have work available for purchase, however, visiting the studios is free.

It’s a great way to have an outing, an opportunity to meet artists, chat about techniques, sign up for classes, and enter a draw at each studio to win a $100 gift certificate which can be used toward the purchase of an item from any tour artist of your choice. The more studios visited, the more chances to win! Artist bios and photos are on the website along with an interactive map of studios:

Serious Coffee, 6357 Hammond Bay Road, has been a supporter for many years and starting May 7th, you can view a sampling of what you’ll find on the tour at their location while treating yourself to a beverage or snack. For the first time this year, artists will also be displaying examples of their work at the Vancouver Island Regional Library, North Nanaimo branch beginning May 8th.
