British Columbia’s diverse culture and pristine natural beauty create the perfect conditions for a vibrant arts community. Artists all over the province open the doors of their studios to the public for specialized viewing tours that can be found on Art-BC.com. Studio tours are an excellent way to immerse yourself in the local art scene. Some artists open their studios throughout the year, or for the summer season, while others will only be available for viewing during organized studio tours.
