Central Island Arts Guide & Studio Tour
The Arts Guide a robust online directory of local artists.
Our studio tour is currently on hold, however many of our artists are open to the public year-round and you can make your own tour quite easily! Look for the Green Flags!
The Central Island Arts Guide is your essential and comprehensive guide to makers, creators and arts service providers between Parksville and Campbell River.
Studio artists include both established and well-known artists – folks who sell their work around the world and are collected in public and private galleries – as well as emerging and experimenting artists who have either just begun their careers or are perhaps shifting to a new genre.
There is something for every taste – paintings, sculpture, pottery, photography, stained glass, fused glass, blown glass, scratchboard, pyrography, puppets, weaving, woodwork, furniture, figurines, big art, little art, art cards, art prints, original art, upcycled art. There’s art that lights up, art you can read and art that floats. There’s realistic, abstract, modern, contemporary, traditional, whimsical, weird and wonderful art.
We encourage you to browse through the website and save your favourite artists, then make a point to go and SEE those artists by setting up appointments for private visits.
