The 38th Annual Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour


Black and red text that reads: Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour

September 24 & 25, 2022

Now in its 38th year, the Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour (KAST) is one of the longest continually running Studio Tours in Canada. KAST offers the public a chance to see the rich and talented artists from across the Peterborough-Kawartha region. Artists working in a range of styles and media, open up their working spaces to the public and share their artistic practice, connect with potential supporters and the community, while also promoting their work. The Art Gallery of Peterborough (AGP) also mounts a supporting exhibition to preview the outstanding quality, spirit, and variety of artists on the Studio Tour.

Each year, the Art Gallery of Peterborough presents the Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour as a part of its commitment to art education, the local arts sector, and the economic prosperity of local artists. KAST directly supports not only artists living and working in our community, but over the past 10 years the tour has injected over 5 million dollars into our local tourist economy!

The two-day Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour is self-driven, and admission is free.
