Scugog Studio Tour 2010

MAY 1st & 2nd, 2010
(DEADLINE Sept 4th, 2009 for artist application to participate)


The artists of the Lake Scugog Spring Studio Tour invite local and guest artists to participate in our 11th Annual Tour on the weekend of May 1 & 2, 2010 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 homestudios 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.

doors to the public and allow visitors a glimpse of the creative process and
technical skill behind the finished work on display.

Some of Scugog’s finest artistic talent will exhibit their work, either in their own
studio or as a guest with another artist. The LSSST also welcomes guest artists
from outside Scugog, enhancing and energizing the tour for both participants and
visitors. Once again, the Tour will be juried, and artists are invited to submit a
complete application for consideration.

The Lake Scugog Spring Studio Tour has gained recognition as an outstanding
tour, not to be missed by visitors from the surrounding areas as well as further
afield from the Greater Toronto Area. Many come to meet the artists in their
home studios and also to enjoy a meal or shop in Port Perry.
