2022 Autumn Studio Tours

Fall is here and it is the perfect time for a drive; the leaves are putting on a show and so are local artists! Fall brings with it the season for Autumn Studio Tours, beginning September 10th, you can take a self-guided tour every weekend up to and including Thanksgiving weekend.

If you are a first-timer, you are in for a treat. The Studio Tour experience is not like visiting a gallery or a gift shop. Juried artists from six different Studio Tours are ready to welcome you into their creative worlds, where you can learn about their inspiration, their process and why they love what they do. With festivals and events coming back after a long COVID hiatus, the artists are excited to welcome back guests. 

Some artists open up their space to guest artists, and this creates an interesting dynamic for the visitor. Be sure to check out each tour website for a complete list of artists and maps to get you on the road.

Consider checking off your gift-giving list by purchasing beautiful pieces of art for your loved ones or treating yourself to something special in support of local artists whose works include painting, woodworking, jewellery, glass blowing, fibre art, photography, metal art, stained glass, pottery and so much more. You will find decorative art, functional art, outdoor art, wearable art, and perhaps even art which defies definition.
