Thinking of Joining?

The Apsley Autumn Studio Tour group invites all interested artists to apply for membership in our autumn studio tour. All applications will be subject to jurying by a panel of three studio tour members.

The Apsley Autumn Studio Tour is a well-established event through which craftspeople and artists sell their work over a 2-day period on the 3rd weekend of September each year.

Deadline for Applications: Nov. 1. Applications received after November 1st will be added to our waiting list, held for jurying for the following year’s tour.

Submission Requirements:

The artists must be resident in the North Kawarthas, living and/or having their permanent studio space within the boundaries of the studio tour area.
Guest artists who have found a compatible member studio to host them may be from outside the tour area.
The artists should be professionals, which may be determined as follows:
The artists are committed, working at a competent level and viewed as such by their peers.
They must have a functioning studio space and display their work so it is readily available to be viewed by the public.
No kits or course art; original works only.
New artists’ studios will be visited and their work juried in person before being given approval to participate. The decision of the jury is final.
The Apsley Autumn Studio Tour is made possible by the co-operative efforts of all participating artists. When accepted onto the tour, you will be required to assist in the distribution of promotional materials, to attend meetings and to volunteer as required to complete other tasks pertaining to the organisation and staging of the tour.
Studio tour membership fees must be paid within 15 days of acceptance to the tour; failure to do so will result in the membership being offered to the next artist on the waiting list.
