Central Island Studio Tour 2019

A luxurious opportunity with more than 90 artist, artisan and creative studios open for your visit!

Spanning 168 km of stunning Central Vancouver Island (Parksville to Campbell River including the Islands), you can combine a relaxing scenic drive with an art exploration like no other.

For three full days you can crawl through painters, potters, beaders, photographers, jewellers, carvers, furniture makers, sculptors, pyrographers, master upcyclers, silver and goldsmiths, designers, screenprinters, and more.

All participating studios are open from 10am-4pm on May 24, 25 & 26. Select studios are also hosting Friday Night Parties!

As it’s impossible to see ALL the studios, producers recommend getting a copy of the Central Island Arts Guide and visiting centralislandartsguide.ca to scour the listings and find the artists that most interest you. Choose one area of the map, or pick out a few artists in each region. Visit a different region every day. Plan a weekend and book a hotel for homebase. Get together with friends to share the driving, pack a picnic or stop any any of the great restaurants and cafes throughout the region.

The Central Island Studio Tour and Arts Guide are produced by Comox Valley Arts, who have been actively supporting, promoting and celebrating the deep, rich Arts & Culture of the region for more than 50 years.

Follow on facebook and instagram for extra details about participating artists, tour contests, and updates.
