The Peterborough-Kawarthas region is rich with talented artists and craft makers practicing in a range of styles and media. The Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour (KAST) offers the public a unique opportunity to view art in the working spaces of artists, while artists and makers get the opportunity to share their practice, connect with potential supporters, and promote their work.
As a cultural organization that deeply values the well-being of our community, the Art Gallery of Peterborough has been closely observing the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring we take all reasonable measures to protect you, our staff and the artists. It is our priority to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience.
As such, we’ve made some changes to the tour this year.
Here’s what you can expect:
- The Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour has been extended to take place over the entire month of September, rather than a single weekend.
- Select artist studios are OPEN to the public, by appointment only (instructions on how to book an appointment below).
- Masks are required while visiting artist studios.
Please note: Artists reserve the right to turn away or refuse service to any visitors not in compliance with Public Health guidelines to their studios.
