Artist Tracy Kobus invites the public to her annual open studio from  Nov. 16 to 18.

This fun event is rewarding for Tracy as she has a chance to share her enthusiasm for painting with others. Visitors can meet the artist in person, see where all her work comes to life and bring home their own Kobus.

Visitors can enjoy a glass of wine or hot apple cider and local chocolates while perusing Tracy’s prints, notebooks, datebooks and originals all at a wide range of prices. There will also be a special on artwork, including a draw to receive a matted print.

Tracy’s more recent paintings, commonly described as uplifting or dream-like, may be found in various locations including the Comox Valley Airport.

Tracy has participated in many community programs and events; such as Local Colours, painting hydro boxes and as an artist at Vancouver Island Musicfest, including designing the image for the 2010 event poster.  As well, she donates artwork to various fundraisers.
