With fewer locations, it’s expected visitors will see more studios per day at this weekend’s Kennisis Lake Cottage Owners’ Association (KLCOA) Art on the Dock.
Spokeswoman Janis Parker said there are 18 locations this year, although most have two or more artists displaying their work. She added there are 28 artists in total for 2019 and many are first-time participants in the popular weekend show.
Parker said the lineup includes, “Two young artists, one Caleb Chawick, who does amazing, lightning patterns on wood and Savannah Tomev, who paints on wood, and does beautiful paddles.”
She added the weekend art cruise by car or boat, will feature a wide range of art including: beauty products and soap; pottery; functional items; jewellery; fabric art; photography and original paintings
She emphasized that most locations are easily accessible by car or boat, with two very accessible boat launches or a paid boat launch at the marina.
