Open Studio Weekend is this weekend. Join us as 24 studios and galleries open their doors for you in Bruce, Grey and Southern Georgian Bay. Pick up a copy of The Art Map at tourist information centres or at the studios. Print out our maps to guide you along the way. Enjoy the amazing fall colours on your travels.
The Art Map is a year-round, FREE, printed guide and map to 8 trails of art studios, art galleries and art exhibitions in Bruce, Grey, Southern Georgian Bay and Manitoulin Island in Ontario. You'll find artists, paintings, pottery, handmade jewellery, metal art, glass, art schools, photography and more. Go to the Browse for Art menu item to find your favourite artists.
This year, we divided the area into 8 fun to-do-trails. Do one per day during the summer or do take a week and do them all. If you can't find a printed map get them here, print them out to take with you.
Pick up copies of The Art Map at Tourist Information centres throughout Bruce, Grey, Simcoe and Manitoulin Island for FREE. You can find copies of The Art Map in surrounding locations as well.
"I draw my inspiration for my oil paintings from many sources; the waters and limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of the Canadian Shield on Lake Superior and Georgian Bay. I am fascinated by the powerful forces that have shaped the landscape and the effects that time and weather have had upon the earth's surface."
Each year Margarethe explores new regions in northern Ontario on foot and by kayak, aiming to capture the waters and unique worn, weathered rock formations of the Canadian Shield. View Margarethe's work at her studio by appointment.
