Welcome to the 2020 Glebe Art in Our Gardens and Studio Virtual Tour!
By Martha Bowers
Many events are not going ahead this summer, and it is with much regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Glebe Art in Our Gardens and Studio Tour. Although the situation may have improved by July, it might still be too risky for artists and visitors to gather in groups.
However, to continue to support local artists during a difficult time, our website glebearttour.ca has become a virtual gallery! Although artists cannot host guests in their gardens and studios this summer because of COVID-19, they are still busy creating art and are inviting visitors to take a virtual tour of their work.
There is a wide range of artistic talent, from painters to photographers to potters and glassworkers. As always, the objective of the tour is to offer both established and up-and-coming artists the opportunity to show their work. Although it will be done in a different way this year, you may still discover a beautiful work of art that will bring pleasure and joy for years to come.
Please look at the art on our website at glebearttour.ca. Click on an image to view more artworks and links to individual artists’ websites where you can contact them to talk about or purchase their art. You can start wherever you like.
Celebrate and support local artists! We look forward to the return of the Glebe Art in Our Gardens and Studio Tour next summer!
