Apples and Art – 25 Years of Celebrating the Arts

September 24, 2016
By Bob Peters

Cornwall Ontario – The arrival of fall is one of the most colourful events of the year in The Cornwall and Counties. The season dresses in its most vibrant hues while local artists open their creative space to visitors.

This year, more than 60 artists are showcasing their art in 26 different locations throughout the region during the Apples and Art Studio Tour.

“The goal of the tour is to give the residents and visitors of Cornwall and area an opportunity to enjoy art in the spaces where it is actually created,” says Virginia Lake. “It is 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.”

“Our 25th year is bigger and better with more artists and and more sites,” adds Ms. Lake. “People will discover all types of artists who work with paint, ink, clay, fine stones, wood and glass to create original pieces of art.”

One of the artists participating is Pierre Giroux, who has set up his art at the brand new Stomping Grounds Bistro in the historic Cotton Mill district along Cornwall’s waterfront.

“As an artist, I love meeting people and seeing their reaction to my art,” says Pierre Giroux. “I would encourage people to try and get to as many studios as possible. The diversity and excellence of the art on display is simply breathtaking!”
