Fairfield Artist Studio Tour

By Robert Amos April 21, 2003

} F.A.S.T. (Fairfield Artists Studio Tour) 2003: This is an invitation to you to come on a studio tour - you will find out about our local artists - are their studios neat or messy? Does she garden and paint under a skylight, does he ride motorcycles and work in a garage? Get the inside information with the second annual Fairfield Artists Studio Tour, Saturday April 26 and Sunday April 27, 2003. The First Fairfield Artists¹ Studio Tour was a huge success last year. Word is out, it¹s back and the sidewalks will be thronged with art lovers. Not to be confused with the Moss Street Paint-In, the Studio Tour is an initiative by artists who live in the area. On their own they open their studios, without admission charge, for two full days. Walk to visit neighbourhood artists and see their art in its home setting. Experience indicates this is just what Victorians want to do, and the Cook Street Village area is where they want to do it. Last year on the weekend, 1500 people visited the workshops of 15 artists. There, they met some amazing artists who live and work in this area. Nothing to pay, no where to sign up. Just put on your walking shoes and come down to the Cook Street Village. Get behind the scenes with some of Victoria¹s favourite artists. Saturday April 26th and Sunday April 27th, 2003 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Maps showing the studios will be available at local businesses. Printable copies of the maps are attached to this email. Or call Dorset Norwich-Young (384 2456) or Robert Amos (389-0303). This year 23 artists are participating. Here is a partial list of the artists, some of whom you might like to visit during the Fairfield Artists Studio Tour 2003. click to see the full-sized list click to see the full-sized map Artist List (click to enlarge) Studio Tour Map (click to enlarge) Jim Gordaneer will be back. He¹s a professional for over forty years whose rich paintings of local subjects push the envelope of space and form. (386-1780) Across the street from Gordaneer¹s studio is the lovely home and skylit studio of Dorset Norwich-Young. Dorset¹s radiant watercolours of flowers and boats are not at all timid. Many of her best paintings are available as prints. (384-2456) Miles Lowry, mask-maker, mystic, and artistic director of Suddenly Dance Theatre. You¹ll see his remarkable faces and torsos: cast in paper, embellished with Celtic designs and finished with plumes from tropical birds. Lowry shares his studio with David Ferguson, artist and dancer. Together they have just released a CD-ROM of their collaboration ³Dance in 500². (389-6049) Ted Speirs carves driftwood to bring out its essential form. Often the form he finds is reminiscent of an eagle or a whale. The sinuous organic presence of the wood is brought out in Speirs¹ quest to capture the spirit of our land. (383-1939) Frances Semple is an expert in decorative finishes and murals, a painter in acrylic and watercolours, and a sculptor who creates castings in bronze and concrete (380-2901) Robert Amos has painted every corner store and old-fashioned gas station in Fairfield. He shares a gallery with his wife Sarah Amos, who paints deeply-felt images of domestic subjects - food and flowers. (389-0303) Waine Ryzak is an artist who has made the medium of cast glass her own. She has been featured with a solo show at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. (598-7541) Brian Moreau¹s lush impressionism reaches out to people. Studio tourists will arrive at his flower-decked backyard studio just as the blossoms are at their peak.
