Apples and Art Studio Tour Bigger in 2017

September 18, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – The arrival of fall also heralds one of the more colourful events on the calendar: the Apples and Art Studio Tour.

This year, more than 60 artists are showcasing their art in 26 different locations on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 4pm.

“The goal of the tour is to give people 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 to learn more about the creative process – which is unique to each artist.”

“We have more artists this year with more than a third new to the tour,” added Ms. Lake.  “It is going to be a grand weather weekend, so a drive out and around the city will be exciting.  The leaves are changing which always makes the tour more colourful.”

Last year, the Apples and Art Studio Tour was recognized by the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce with the Tourism Excellence Award.

“Local artists were excited by the acknowledgement,” says Ms. Lake.  “Artists impact the community in so many ways. We know that people come from out of town to visit the tour and that in addition to buying art they will also spend dollars on other things like lunch, gift and speciality shops, gas and more.”

The Apples and Art Studio Tour will help people discover a wide variety of artists who work with paint, ink, clay, fine stones, wood, glass and other material to create original pieces of art. An Apples and Arts app is available for smart phone users is free that provides directions and info on each location.

“If you are taking the tour, get a brochure from your first artist, download it from our website or use the app on your phone. Make sure you leave time for lunch and above all else, enjoy the scenery!”

The two-day tour stretches from Morrisburg to Alexandria, with numerous stops along the way.
