Spend your weekend enjoying local art
›› Ken Guenter
The 12th annual Fernwood Art Stroll will take place on Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
Fernwood makers and artists will be opening their studios to exhibit and sell their art. Visitors will enjoy this opportunity to see artwork in artists’ gardens, studios, and workshops—making the event an enjoyable multi-faceted experience.
This year’s stroll will feature painters, sculptors, photographers, calligraphers, illustrators, carvers of wood and stone, and makers of furniture and baskets. The Pandora Arts Collective, at 1923 Fernwood Road, will host an interactive site for children and families. There will be something unique and handmade for everyone.
This event is an opportunity to meet and support local artists. Please invite your friends, family, and colleagues to join in. While touring the neighbourhood you can also enjoy the hospitality of the local businesses in the Fernwood Square and Haultain corners: cafes, pubs, and bistros, and the many unique shops.
The event carries on rain or shine. This is a chance for Victorians to meet local artists and designers. It is also an opportunity to walk or cycle around one of Victoria’s wonderful heritage neighborhoods when the gardens and streets are at their best.
