2023 Apples and Arts : Looking for Member Participants
The Apples & Art Studio Tour is celebrating its 32nd year, taking place September 23rd and 24th in 2023. The arrival of fall is one of the most colourful events of the year in our area. The season dresses in its most vibrant hues while local artists open their creative space to visitors.
The goal of the Tour is to give the residents and visitors to Cornwall and area an opportunity to enjoy art in the spaces where it is actually created. 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 2022 event realized more than 6,500 studio visitors who purchased more than $90,000 worth of art during the two-day event.
The EOAN member sites that joined the tour also experienced significant patronage from our tour-takers as they worked their way across SD&G, visiting our 44 studio locations. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be part of the 32nd Annual Apples & Art Studio Tour!
