Welcome to our fabulous new Uxbridge Studio Tour website – your virtual introduction to one of the most popular annual events in north Durham Region!
During the 2014 Tour, which will take place on September 20 and 21, we’ll dust ourselves down, clean the paint/clay/grit from our hands and put ourselves, and some of our best creative friends, on display for you.
For starters, you can explore our Tour artists’ studios by clicking on the images on the Portfolio page. Check out the links to the artists’ own websites and to other shows we may be participating in. We’d love to see you there, too!
In order to make the September Tour easier for you, we have included a new Studio Map that has increased functionality. You can use this to plan your ideal route to the different studios that interest you.
We have also expanded our site to include information on the folks and businesses that make Uxbridge such a creative hive. If you are looking for a powerful reason to explore our area, both during and outside of the Tour weekend, click on our News/Blog section and scroll through Our Town. Discover Places to eat, Places to stay and Things to do, as well as more Uxbridge stories.
We’re tremendously excited to share our passion for the arts with you. We have the artists, the studio stops and the map – all we need to complete the picture is YOU! See you on the tour.
