The Central Island Arts Guide & Studio Tour is open to any creative who wishes to share their work with the public. Visual, performing, written, and digital arts are all welcome.
In most years, we heavily promote a substantial 3-day studio tour on the last weekend of May. In 2020, that will be different, and currently we don't know what exactly it will look like.
To participate in the tour, you must commit to being open all THREE days from 10am-4pm.
Each Location on the tour MUST have a corresponding Web Listing for reference
Each Artist at each location is required to be a member AND purchase the Add-on to be included in the Tour.
It is a REQUIREMENT of the Tour that artists be in attendance on all three days.
We would prefer if ONE artist acted as liaison for groups, to ensure efficient and accurate communication.
Fees are as follows:
Annual Web-Only Location Listing
$120 per artist, collective or group studio
Includes ONE 1-year membership in Comox Valley Arts for location owner/resident.
Web-Only Listings do NOT appear in the print guide. They appear at centralislandartsguide.ca for as long as you continue to renew your annual listing.
$TBA - when we know what the tour can/will look like for 2020.
Listings are accepted via this online form only.
Payment methods include Credit card or eTransfer.
Payment is due within 15 days of submission and must be paid before listing goes live.
