The Thanksgiving Studio Tour is for full-time resident artists on Gabriola, Mudge**, Link**, De Courcy**, or Valdes Island**. All visual artists and artisans who are permanent residents of these Islands and members of the Gabriola Arts Council may participate in the Studio Tour.
Only visual artists and artisans who create original, handmade, unique, one-of-a-kind works are invited to exhibit their work on the Tour. No mass-produced products or consumable goods are permitted. The exception is material that is derived from a work of your own visual art (e.g. notecards, prints, or other reproductions).
**Note that all Artists must show their work on Gabriola Island during the studio tour. For help finding a Gabriola-based host or gallery to display your work during the Tour weekend – please reach out to email@example.com as early as possible so we may help match you with a suitable host.
Consider hosting a guest.
If you are a Primary Studio willing to host a Guest Artist, or a Guest Artist looking for a Studio, let us know and we will try to facilitate a match.
