Perth Onatario Autumn Studio Tour

It goes without saying that the real essence of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is the creative process of producing fine pieces of art, giving insight to others on work methods as well as the dedication and love for the craft. Although some studios will give demonstrations, some pieces are just handed over to the guest artists and studios. To give you a sneak peak into how the craftsmen work, here’s a PHOTO GALLERY you can check out.

For this year, 19 artists from all over Perth Ontario and parts of Eastern Ontario gather to join the tour. With over seven different rural studios scattered near Perth, each stop is very accessible and matched beautiful scenery. Have a look at the demonstrations some stops offer or enjoy the featured fairytale-like garden walks.

A few of the media featured on tour are jewelry, etchings, pottery, furniture, sculptures and wood carvings. To give you an idea on where the stops are located, click on the MAP provided.

Without a doubt, the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is an extra special showcase for contemporary works of art. This highly respected team of artisans was recognized by the Ontario Arts Council, with an award for the high standard of work displayed over the previous decade. What’s more, it was the only studio in Ontario to receive such an honor.
