Application for Entry


The Prince Edward County Studio Tour is a Prince Edward County Arts Council countyarts.ca event. It is an opportunity for artists and gallery owners who are residents or ratepayers of Prince Edward County to open their studios to allow the public to watch them at work, demonstrating and explaining how and why they create their art. Artists with a studio are encouraged to host one or more registered guest artists at their studio during the Tour weekend.  The Tour offers an opportunity to sell directly to the public and to personally meet with new, repeat and potential clientele.

Each “new to the Tour” applicant’s work and studio/gallery is subject to a mandatory jurying process and studio/gallery inspection. The jurying process is based on a number of criteria including the quality of the work, the professionalism of the presentation, studio/gallery space, safety requirements, etc.  Returning members may be subject to a jury interview to ensure that they continue to meet the Tour requirements. 

The Tour strives for a balanced representation of media and an optimal number of members. There is no guarantee that all applications will be accepted.
