Free studio tours offer Winnipeggers a glimpse into artists’ creative realms

june 1st, 2011

Often I stand at my bench and listen to the radio…pick up on some news item or listen to a song, and from the lyric put together a ceramic piece. Dealing with popular culture goes way back for me. – from “A look inside the world of Jordan Van Sewell”

Year round, Jordan Van Sewell creates his signature ceramic art in the privacy of his backyard studio in the Point Douglas neighbourhood of Winnipeg. But this weekend Jordan is opening up the door of his studio. You have a chance to meet the artist in his creative space—and see his original art up close.

And there are a lot more artists to chose from. It’s all part of Winnipeg’s In Plain View. This weekend you can take an studio tour and meet artists working in many media – paintings, ceramics, sculpture, watercolour, printmaking, glass art, jewellery-making, wearable art and more. And here’s a phrase Winnipeggers love to hear: It’s free.
