An art exhibit exploring the studio spaces of some famous and not-so-famous painters, sculptors and photographers is running at the Rocky Mountain House Public Library until June 27.

Where artists choose to work can profoundly affect the type and quantity of the artwork they produce, said the library’s curator Lisa Harbridge.

Some will use whatever space is available, while others use lack of space as a reason for not creating more artwork.

The artworks shown will be rendered in various materials, from paint and photography to metals to glass and fibres.

They will be exhibited in conjunction with presentations discussing the artists’ studios.

An actual tour of 13-plus artist studios will take place in Rocky and Caroline in July.

Exhibit hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday (closing time is 8 p.m. on Wednesdays), and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
