It is only a few days now until Art Trek, Saskatoon's first studio discovery tour, which will take place at five city art studios (Friday June 8, 5 – 10 pm, and Saturday June 9, 10 am – 5 pm). The five studios involved in the tour include 330 Design Group (330 Ave G South), Artists' Workshop (505 10th St East), Men Who Paint (324 Duchess St), St George Studio Artists (1932 St George Ave), and The Mix Collective Artists (539 24th St East).
