Tour of the Arts 2013 approaches

The 35 artists featured in this year’s tour on Sunday, August 4th are an incredibly talented group of people

Three weeks until the 2013 Tour of the Arts gives Invermere a jolt of creativity. The 35 artists featured in this year’s tour on Sunday, August 4th are an incredibly talented group of people.

Attached to the Tour will be opportunities to win two splendid prizes. There will be a raffle for a charming handcrafted arbour from the woodworkers at Cross Roads Collective, and those who visit all three sites and obtain three stamps in their Passport will have the chance to win an exquisitely crafted birch bowl, donated by Anders Oseychuk.

Anders Oseychuk has been turning wood for his whole adult life. Having been introduced to woodturning at age 13, Anders now spends his time in his shop creating. Anders uses unique and natural shapes, as well as found or discarded wood, to create beautiful and one of a kind pieces of art. With hundreds of signed and sold works, he has created a style of his own, and a name for himself as a woodturner.

Anders’ bowl is a beautiful piece of work, so be sure to get all three stamps in your passport book for the chance to win!

You can pick up your 2013 Tour of the Arts Passport book at Meet at Higher Ground Coffee House, in Radium; La Galeria II, in Fairmont; Essentials Department Store, and Village Arts, in Invermere. You can also buy a Passport or raffle tickets at Pynelogs Art Gallery and Cultural Centre, on Kinsmen Beach in Invermere, or at the CVArts tent at the Invermere Farmers’ Market every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call Pynelogs for any questions at 250-342-4423, or find out more on Facebook through the Pynelogs Cultural Centre page.

Get your Passports early, and support local artists in the valley!
