Although this tour took place last weekend, it might be worth your while, if you missed the tour to phone or e-mail the artists and ask for a second chance.
Did you ever wonder what goes on in an artist's studio?
Join five artists from In Plain View for an afternoon of art in their studios and homes in the South Osborne neighbourhood. From pottery to painting, photography to sculpture, and more, there is sure to be something to please everyone's eyes. The coffee is hot, the cider is simmering, and the art is for sale. Come with questions and conversation this December 8th and 9th, from noon to 5 PM. We look forward to meeting our neighbours and sharing our years' efforts.

Helen Lyons - 695 Fisher Street
Funky or functional, Helen can never decide. This explains the very functional bowls and mugs and serving dishes. Then whimsy takes over and expressionist sculptures, teddy bears, and jewelry fill the kilns.
