Linda Potts is a Muskoka-based artist who creates bold and dramatically colourful images with a strong sense of atmosphere.
"Coming from the Beach area in Toronto I was impressed by the vast skies and low horizons of the Muskoka area. The fleeting images of the wild life intrigued me and the beautiful flora and how to interpret it with a fresh point of view was a challenge. After all no one can do it as well as the Group of Seven."Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour invites visitors to enter the studios of artists and to learn about the process behind the artists' newest creations. In our 36th year, we are happy to welcome Linda Potts to the tour. Visit her Gravenhurst studio on September 27-28 and October 4-5 from 10 am to 6 pm to see what has captured her imagination.
Held during peak Autumn colours, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour is a self-guided tour featuring some of the finest artists and craftspeople working within the region.
