The Visions Art Tradition Continues in the Cowichan Valley


Visions Artists once again will open their studios for three days so that you can see first hand the exceptional work they do and choose work that was inspired by these unique settings in the Cowichan Valley.

You'll see oceanfronts, gardens, woodlands and farm settings thatsurround the artist's studios in Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Cowichan Bay, Maple Bay and Crofton. You'll discover parts of the Cowichan Valley you've never visited before and take away with you lovely memories and superb pieces of art to enjoy forever.

For more than 20 years Visions Artists have presented this free, self-guided tour to introduce you to the exceptional artists who live here. You may find one is your neighbour!

On the Studio Tour this year are Michele Heath, Bev Robertson, Sue Coleman, Eileen McGann, Catherine Taron, Karen Bottcher, Rosemary Danaher, Brigette Furlonger, Roger Jackson, Charlotte Haggart, Neil Fatin, Jocelyn West, Carolyn McDonald and Terry Harrison.

You can read all about the artists and see some of their work in the members section of this website.

Out-of-towners- Come and make a weekend of it, stay over and visit all 13 of the studios and then take in other Cowichan highlights like the Kinsoll Trestle, Forest Museum, wineries, restaurants and the boutique-rich city of Duncan. It will be a memorable weekend, you'll see! And you'll be Seeing Visions.

Pick up the July issue of Valley Voice magazine for a pull-out map/brochure to take with you and guide you on the Studio Tour. Check out The Citizen newspaper for information and map the week before the Visions Studio Tour. You can also download the map/brochure here.
