Windsor Essex Open Studio Tour 2023
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Arts & Cultural Alliance of Windsor Essex is thrilled to announce that the Windsor Essex Open Studio Tour is returning on the weekend of September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2023. This 3-day event offers a rare opportunity for the public to gain insight into the behind-the-scenes workings of our talented local artists and artisans in their own studios and workspaces.
The Open Studio Tour encompasses a diverse range of art forms, including painting, pottery, textiles, jewelry, printmaking, photography, and woodturning. Our past events have seen remarkable success, with the 2019 edition attracting over 600 visitors to 12 different sites, featuring the impressive works of more than 30 artists. This year, we are proud to showcase approximately 15 artists at 6 different studios, providing both a marketing platform for seasoned professionals and a supportive environment to nurture and highlight emerging talents.
By participating in the Open Studio Tour, visitors can experience firsthand the artistic processes involved in creating captivating art. Through self-guided tours, they will have the opportunity to engage with artists, witness their creative techniques, and gain a deeper appreciation for the incredible talent within our community.
The Open Studio Tour is not only a celebration of art but also a collaborative effort, held in conjunction with the Ontario Culture Days events each fall. This creates a wonderful synergy, expanding the reach of our event and bringing together art enthusiasts from all corners of the region.
