On the third weekend in November, every year, we hold a studio tour in my town. Otterville is a historic town located in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. This will be our 18th annual studio tour – we call it Welcome Back to Otterville – and every year the stops on the tour change slightly as the artists in town do. This year, there are eight stops on the tour, so it will be really easy to drive out, see all the stops, and return home if you live in, say, London, Kitchener/Waterloo, Stratford, or the western part of greater Toronto. It takes me less than an hour to drive to London, and about two hours to downtown Toronto, exactly an hour to Stratford. We aren’t on any major highway, but if you want directions please contact me and I’ll be happy to provide them.
If anyone reading this has been to my studio before, you will find this year quite different as I will be featuring my fractal work prominently. In fact, in the next few weeks I’ll be taking down all the art in my gallery at the rear of my house, and completely rearranging the walls to maximize the display. I always serve a lovely hot spiced cranberry punch during the tour, and I’m looking forward to the taste of it myself!
My gallery and studio are actually open all year to anyone who calls ahead or happens by on an afternoon when I’m home. I’ve just put a new sign out front (the old one suffered from weather damage) so you can easily find my location which is right on the Main Street downtown, just a few houses away from the historic mill and waterfall. Look for the yellow flags when you get here and use the map on the postcards (available at each stop) to help.
Here is some information for the tour, and a few photos.
