The Arts Trail is a great way to indulge your love of things hand-crafted and real. It’s an opportunity to explore your own inner artist spirit, to collect art, or just to go wild buying unique gifts. There is something satisfying about buying a creation from the artist who made it – the object and the pleasure of purchase stays with you like a good friend, and provides a life long connection to a special County story. Naturally the galleries and studios you visit will be as diverse as the artists themselves. Multiple-artist galleries are a great way of seeing a range of work, and part of the fun of the Arts Trail is that it takes you around our beautiful countryside to discover workshops, studios and galleries in a range of settings. Expect everything from cozy country to cutting edge – all good for your imagination, your experience of the County and our creative community. Visit artstrail.ca
