The Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour features the work of over 30 artists from Peterborough and County.

The Art Gallery of Peterborough joins forces with local artists, inviting you to explore the visual arts and crafts including visiting where the artists live and work.

Studios and galleries will be open Saturday September 22 and Sunday September 23, from 10 am to 5 pm to display a wide range of arts and crafts, including fine art, ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture, wood, fibre, metal and printmaking. This is a self-drive tour and admission is free to all locations.

The tour is broken into 3 geographical areas including the City of Peterborough, the County of Peterborough and Lakefield.

There are too many artists to outline individually here – and getting to see all of them may also be challenging – but no matter who you choose to see, you will not be disappointed.

Here are just a few highlights:

Christy Haldane combines glass with other common building materials, such as stone, concrete and steel enhancing the fragility and strength of the glass components. She melts and fuses reclaimed window glass to create simple forms that highlight the fundamental qualities of the glass.

David Hickey is best known for his metal work depicting the landscape of the Kawarthas. He manipulates rigid hardened metal into a fluid form, similar to how nature transforms the harshness of landscapes.

Stephanie Ford Forrester works in silks, batiks and hand dyed or painted textiles. Her travels in Europe, Afghanistan, and India, combined with unusual living experiences have all contributed to her artistic practice.
