The arrival of fall ushers in one of the area’s most colourful events – the Apples and Art Studio Tour.

Held over the weekend of Saturday, September 28th and Sunday, September 29th, Apples and Art sees dozen of local artists opening their creative spaces to visitors.

Last year’s event featured 72 artists at 21 different locations throughout the region. The 2019 tour promises even more to discover, with more than 80 artists – some fresh new faces and long-time favourites – participating in 33 locations throughout Cornwall and SDG Counties.

“The goal of the tour is to give residents and visitors a chance to enjoy art in the spaces where it is actually created,” said Virginia Lake, one of the event organizers. “It’s a chance to meet the artists, to chat, to see their work in a natural setting and enjoy the wellness of visual beauty and friendly company.”

Tourgoers will discover artists who work in a variety of mediums including paint, ink, clay, fine stones, wood and glass to create original pieces of art.
