Application to Join

Applications for 2024 are now OPEN!

Celebrating 30 years in 2024, the Georgina Studio Tour is a well-established event at which artisans and artists present their work over a 2-day period on the last full weekend in September. We invite all interested artists to apply. Our Jury will review your application and contact you. Deadline for application is February 29, 2024. All Jury selections are final.

OVERVIEW

The Georgina Studio Tour is made possible through the cooperative participation of the artists. Participating artists are encouraged to assist in distributing promotional materials such as brochures, postcards and signs, as well as participating in on-site promotions during the Tour such as lucky draws and surveys.

A steering committee sets annual marketing plans and a budget, and oversees the jurying of new applicants. Artists are welcome to offer ideas and assistance and to join the committee.

The Georgina Studio Tour has a private Facebook group to facilitate communication. Artists are encouraged to join it when invited. 

Successful applicants will be featured on the Tour’s website and social media accounts, will receive signage and marketing materials, and will be invited to participate in all our publicity efforts. Deadline for submission is February 29, 2024.
