About Apples & Art Studio Tour
Held during the last weekend of September, the Apples & Art Studio Tour provides a collective venue for artists up their studio space to the community and visitors, encouraging them to find out more about the arts through discussion about the work, their processes and through various hands on demonstrations that would take place during the tour.
The Apples & Art Studio Tour was the recipient of the Business Excellence Award for Tourism by the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce in 2016. Last year’s tour saw 3,600 studio visits and $40,000 worth of art sold during the two-day event.
The tour is organized by a group of artists working with Your Arts Council.
