VAB opts out of studio tour

Visual Arts Brampton has decided to opt out of this year's Studios of Brampton tour. While the first year was well received, the turnout was increasing disappointing with each year.

Had the cost of participation not increased, we might have considered participating this year, however the poor scheduling (including last year's Thanksgiving weekend dates) were also a key factor. The cost and effort required for the turnout didn't seem to be worth it.

Of course, we're continuing to go out to numerous events around Brampton. Just like Artway does, we're bringing the art to the people, which we feel is much more effective in engaging audiences.
