The Haliburton County Studio Tour will host a preview show of this year’s tour during the first two weeks of September at the Finn Artists’ Centre on Newcastle Street in Minden.
“We’re trying to give people a taste of the artwork they’ll see on the tour” explains organizer Pat Jones whose husband Gord is a watercolour artist.
The studio tour itself takes place the last weekend of September and the first weekend of October Thanksgiving weekend Oct. 6 and 7.
The show at Finn’s will serve as a microcosm of the works by the artists whose studios residents can visit during the tour.
“We have a good variety of artwork” Jones says explaining the preview show will include glass art pottery textiles woodworking weaving quilting fabric art and several types of paintings.
The show will open Sept. 1 and run until Sept. 15 and will be available for viewing during Finn’s regular hours Wednesdays through Sunday from noon until 4 p.m.
