Easter Art Tour 2017-03-13T10:27:27+00:00

The Arts Council runs the Easter Art Show to promote artists living and working on Salt Spring Island.

The Easter Art Tour is a special event held each year by the Arts Council and curated by Anthony Matthews. The event begins on Good Friday and features a 10-day exhibition of fine arts by Salt Spring artists working in painting, sculpture and photography. Over the Easter Weekend, visitors are invited to take a self-guided tour of participating artist studios and galleries. The Easter Art Tour complements the permanent Salt Spring Studio Tour of artist/artisan studios which runs throughout the summer months.

Full details available at the Easter Art Tour site.
