Coming Aug 27-28, 2022

Malaspina Art Society proudly presents the annual qathet Region Studio Tour will be held the last weekend in August (Sat & Sun Aug 27 & 28), from 10am-4pm. With 29 venues and over 40 participating artists – some venues hosting multiple artists – it’s a great way for art-makers and art lovers to meet and exchange ideas, and of course sell some of the exciting new art produced on the upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Each year we welcome hundreds of eager visitors into our homes and studios to see where the magic happens.
