It's that time of year again  425 artists in studios all over East Vancouver are readying to open their doors to visitors this weekend for the 17th Eastside Culture Crawl. With no set schedule or pressure to buy, it's an incredible opportunity to get an eye-opening glimpse into the working life of our city's flourishing creative culture at your own pace. 

Winsor Gallery's Judy D. Shane and David Robinson are well-loved veterans of the Culture Crawl and will be opening their studios at 1000 Parker Street to the public once again this year. Shane's studio promises to be a warm berth of well-lit calm where participants can chat with Judy about her fascinating artistic process, which is informed by her concurrent career in film and special effects. Robinson's metalworking facilities will no doubt be of interest as well, as industrial materials are wrangled into forms that are both powerful and poised. Those new to the Crawl will be delighted by the labyrinthine, urban-decay vibes of the Parker Street building, which fulfills its role as the quintessential artist's colony.
