Local painters, sculptors, potters and other artists from Flamborough and beyond invite visitors to come see their own colorful and creative gifts during the Fine Arts Society of Milton (FASM) Studio Tour from 1-2 October.

Flamborough artist Bill Brehm said there were 19 different venues and 41 artists taking part in the tour, which will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

“We are excited about the upcoming studio tour and will welcome five more artists to our facility,” he said. “They are all great artists, friends and nice people who can’t wait to share their love of creative art with the public, especially our neighbors in Flamborough.

“It should also be a great weekend for a fall color tour.”

The tour will include studios in Milton, Kilbride, Hamilton and Halton Hills, as well as four stops in Flamborough, featuring 18 local artists. Flamborough sites include:

• Studio 16: 1617 Milburough Line with artists Lois Freese, Margaret Jones, Joel Troster, Jean Rivers, Sharon Crosby, Bill Brehm and Marnie Brehm.

• Studio 17: 1913 Center Rd., Carlisle, with artists Cheryl-Ann Hills and Donalou Langdon.

• Studio 18: 2 Palomino Dr., Carlisle, with artists Monika Schaefer, Linda Ross Gallagher, Annick Bourdon and Angie Trkulja.

Brehm said that for the most part the art available to the public is new — although there may be a piece or two that comes from the recent past.

“Artists are all (really) excited and working hard to produce art that they hope to sell,” Brehm said, adding artist Linda Ross Gallagher, who is committed to creating one new painting a day over the month of september.

“His work is just wonderful,” he said, noting that the artist did it to challenge himself. “To do one painting a day takes some dedication and I’m really looking forward to sneaking in and checking out her stuff, if I get the chance.”

Brehm said the most important part of touring is participating with friends and fellow artists, as well as making new friends and bringing fun to the community.
