All Studio artists interested in participating in the 2019 Art in Action Burlington Studio Tour must have their studio available to exhibit and demonstrate their and other artists’ artwork during the tour from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both Saturday November 2 and Sunday November 3, 2019. A studio must be able to provide adequate indoor space for 2 to 3 guest artists to display. If applying as a “Studio Location & Artist”, your studio must be located in Burlington, Ontario. All artists that apply must be producing works that are hand made by the artist themselves and of the highest quality.

All applicants will be juried by an Art in Action committee. Our goal is to demonstrate current (within the last 24 months) original, one of a kind, handmade work. Artwork acceptable for the tour must be original Fine Arts and Crafts. Reproductions of fine art will not be accepted unless accompanied by original work. Photographs and Digital Art must include a statement describing the process that has to be displayed with the art during the tour. You may be contacted for further details by our jurors, and may be asked to provide a sample of your work. If you are a new studio to the tour, we will arrange to see your studio space for appropriateness and safety issues before acceptance.
