Our studio tour was founded in 2010 by a group of South Mississauga area artisans to highlight professional craftspeople, living and working in the region. Our 2016 tour, the seventh annual tour, will again showcase more than 20 artists.
A new structure for our tour took place in 2015, our tour took place totally within Port Credit and involved local galleries and retailers as well as some artists’ studios. This made the tour quite walkable and more accessible. Visitors to the art tour enjoyed the new structure of the tour, making it walkable, accessible and visible. “It was so much easier to get around”, was heard many times.
Art/craft lovers will again see displays of Mississauga’s finest crafts, including: weaving/dyeing, ceramics, felting, furniture, metalwork, flamework/glass beads, woodcarving and pottery, blown glass, rughooking, handbags and many kinds of unique jewellery, along side local fine art.
NEW NAME & NEW DATE:
In 2017 Arts on the Credit: The Tour will take place on September 23rd, 2017, 11 am – 5 pm and Sunday, September 24th, 11 am – 4 pm. It will be the seventh annual studio tour and our best tour yet. These are the only changes in the tour. Various Port Credit retail shops will again be hosting our artists.
Be sure to mark your calendars now and set aside the weekend. It definitely is a unique shopping experience. It is also a great time to gather together a few girlfriends and wander through our venues, resting for lunch at one of the fabulous Port Credit restaurants. You will discover some amazing work. We will continue to highlight our new artists in regular blog posts. It is always very interesting and enlightening to learn all the wheres, whys and hows involved in the creation of such outstanding work.
Arts on the Credit: The Tour (formerly The Port Credit Art Tour) provides an opportunity to treat yourself, add to your collection or purchase that special gift for a very special occasion.
