Art Tour Studio Tour

ART TOUR Studio Tour (formerly known as the Bloor West Art Tour) is celebrating its 21st anniversary and we invite you to come to see a new unique art exhibit by Luba Magdenko and Annis Tebbutt (art name Thompson) at St. Olave’s! Luba’s art has precision and detail in contrast to a looser application of paint and with a love of bright colour. Annis is inspired through her work by the adaptation of nature to landscapes made over by people.

The exhibit will be located in the Narthex, the foyer area at the Windermere door. All are welcome and admission is free, as is admission for all the 28 sites in west end neighbourhoods of the ART TOUR! Visit the ART TOUR website for more details about the artists and the tour stops, or email Annis.
