ANNUAL LAKE SCUGOG STUDIO TOUR

May 5 & 6, 2012

The artists of the Lake Scugog Spring Studio Tour invite local and guest artists to participate in our 13th Annual Tour on the weekend May 5th & 6th 2012 at studios in the Township of Scugog. The picturesque town of Port Perry is our central location situated one hour Northeast of Toronto.

Artists in all media are invited to apply for jurying – fibre, clay, glass, wood, metal, photography, paintings, mixed media and more.

Our Tour is a free, self-guided journey that is held on the first weekend in May each year. Using an illustrated brochure with map to guide them, visitors drive around the Township to our home studios as spring reawakens the landscape.

Visitors can ask questions and get to know us on our home turf. They can not only acquire memorable art pieces but also have a glimpse of the ‘artist’s life.’

Every September, 30 to 40 artists are selected by jury and placed at about 20 studio sites.

From September to May, the artists meet monthly to orchestrate a symphony of tasks that make the tour successful. The whole effort is sustainable, because it is run as an artists’ co-operative; everyone has a job to do.

The results of all this effort are truly remarkable, as our many new and repeat visitors will attest. They come from a wide area encompassing Southern, Central and Eastern Ontario.
