Carr’s Landing Art Tour Keeps Getting Better

Art show along Lake Country's Carr's Landing ward completes 12th year with great and unique pieces of art

Lake Country artist Kris Malmkvist with an Alabaster Sculpture was part of the Carr's Landing art tour.

The 2016 version of the Carr’s Landing Art Tour took place over the last two weekends as artists showed off their creations and residents went through a self-guided tour of artists’ studios, collecting stamps at each location.

Record numbers of people turned out for both Saturday and Sunday tours, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Organizer Noreen Malmkvist said about 200 people toured works by nine artists in Carr’s Landing on the first weekend, compared to 250 people over both weekends last year.

“It’s gone extremely well,” said Malmkvist. “The art is definitely varied and very professional. I think everyone is excited when this comes around. I never expected to have the success like we have had.”

This marked the 12th year of the Carr’s Landing Art Tour which began when Malmkvist heard of a similar tour in Ladysmith, on Vancouver Island and decided to start one in Lake Country.

“I thought if they can do it in Ladysmith, we can do it in Lake Country,” she said. “It’s definitely a great event. It’s huge exposure for the artists.”

Art ranging from sculptures to paintings to collages and pieces of jewelry were on display. Residents who toured artists homes were entered into one of two prizes for wine donated by the Lake Country wineries.

Artists who took part were:

John Waite

Virginia May

Chris Malmkvist

Maureen Kaczkowski

Daniela Hasler

Doug Morgan

Laine Lowe

Dale Harris and

Wendy Klein.
