Introducing Port Credit Art Tour
Port Credit, ON – Now entering its sixth year, the Mississauga Artisan Studio Tour has morphed into the Port Credit Art Tour to include fine art along with the fine art-based craft that has made the tour the anticipated event it has become. The tour will take place October 24th & 25th, 10 am – 5 pm. More than 20 artists will be presenting their artwork for sale. Another huge change to the tour will be its visibility, walkability and accessibility. The locations hosting the artists are right on Lakeshore Road in Port Credit, clustered in the east, central and west village.
The Port Credit Art Tour is the vision of Marie Payne whose passion is to support and encourage local artists and enable them to stay in the area. As written by Kristy Elik in Mississauga Life magazine, Nov./Dec. ’13, “Payne is an extraordinarily committed animateur”. She is “a gale force in the movement for emerging artists in Port Credit”.
Visitors will receive a “Tour Passport” at their first studio and when they have had it initialled at all locations, they will become eligible for one of several unique and original draw prizes donated by the artists.
