263 Art Sudio Tour Information Page

Welcome to the 2018 263 Art Studio Tour

Dates for the 2018 Tour are Saturday, July 21 & Sunday, July 22 10:00 AM till 5:00 PM each day.

The artists who participated in the 2017 263 Art Studio Tour wish to thank all of our visitors for taking the time to meet with us in our homes and studios. We welcomed the conversations with old and new friends and we also wish to thank you for purchases of our work. If we did not have those who will appreciate and purchase our work, we have less incentive and fewer means to create more.

We are considering better ways of communicating with friends and customers before the Tour dates. If you have ideas about the kind of communication / information that would be helpful to you, please pass on these suggestions to Gerald or June (see below for contact information).

Look to more updates to this web site in the new year when we have a better idea of Tour Participants.


Each summer, we open our studios and homes to those interested in exploring the artistic excellence and diversity of our area of northern Saskatchewan: Tweedsmuir, Emma Lake, Christopher Lake, and Paddockwood -- an area connected by Highway 263.

Visit artists in their studios/homes to see where they work, what they are working on, and who they are. Works will be for sale. We do not sell works through this website at this time.

Most of our Artists do not Use Credit or Debit cards to sell their work. There are several ATM's available in the area for your use. Bring cheques or cash if you plan to purchase work from our members.

General Information

We welcome and seek out your suggestions for improvement of both this Tour Web Site and of our Tour Sites and organization. Please send your comments to any of the two members listed below.

Most of our participating artists would welcome further contact with you throughout the year. Use the contact information on each Artist's page. Artists may choose to use this web site to update and expand images of their new work throughout the year. Check for updates from your favourite artist and pass on our web address to your friends.

Some of our 263 Art Studio Tour artists  have their own web sites and links will be provided on the Tour Artists  page. As well, you  will find individual contact  information there.  For other inquiries about the 263 Art Studio Tour contact:
