 Maple Ridge ~ Pitt Meadows Art Studio Tour

Discover the Artists in Your Neighbourhood!

May 10thand 11th2020, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

 

Welcome Artists!

The Art Studio Tour has been going strong since 1998.

Our mission is to raise awareness, engage and educate our community about the artists who call Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows home.

Participating tour artists open their professional and home studios for the Mothers’ Day weekend to invite the public to see who we are, what we do, and where we spend our time to create our art!

Throughout the year, the MRPM Art Studio Tour Society also participates in various community events to promote our annual tour and our artwork (such as Farmers Markets, Earth Day, Culture Days and tour preview showing at the Maple Ridge Library). We encourage all our artists to participate with us by volunteering, demonstrating and showing your work.

 

Join us!
