  1. Elora Fergus Studio Tour

    Comments Off on Elora Fergus Studio Tour

    We’re renowned for our artist collectives. Creativity thrives here. The Elora Fergus Studio Tour is free of charge and is your chance to get inside the creative spaces of our local artists, in a self-guided tour that takes place annually over two weekends. Meet the makers and see what inspires them.  Start at the Elora Centre for the Arts, with their exhibit featuring the artists on tour, and then head off to get inspired.

    Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.

    The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios.
