Annual Rideau Lakes Studio "Tour"

     2767 HIGHWAY 15                              6 CAMPBELL STREET


As you know, we could not hold our 2020 or 2021 Canada Day Weekend Studio Tours thanks to the COVID 19 global pandemic we are currently living. But we are artists and creating is what we do so we did not stop that part. We have beautiful new works just waiting to go home with you. Come discover the results of ELEVEN creative minds at work, all in one expansive area. Some outside, a few well distanced inside and one more just down the road.

We all need the outing, the interaction, the fresh air and all that incredible wall candy. WE WILL BE distanced, sanitized and masked and need you to be as well. We have been cautiously double vaccinated and are equally cautiously heeding the necessary safety measures and protocols.

The quaint village of Portland and Rideau Lakes offer such beautiful countryside and waterways. It could be a perfect day to enjoy a picnic lunch along one of the locks or in a local park. Stop in for lunch or afternoon snack at the wonderful 'The Galley' waterfront restaurant looking out on Big Rideau Lake in Portland. A true afternoon delight.


Our art is motivated and stimulated by the natural beauty of the waterways, culture, and history of this part of eastern Ontario. Here, in the surroundings of the Rideau Canal, a National Historic Site and an Ontario UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can explore these roots, and enjoy the unique creations produced by our local artists in an extensive range of styles and media.

We look forward to sharing our creations with you. Browse our Artists Studios on this site to view some of the works that await you along with our artists' short biographies.
