2021 Central Island Arts Guide & (Virtual) Studio Tour

We are making plans for the next virtual Studio Tour. It will take place on its traditional dates in the last weekend of May.

We hope to offer a HYBRID tour, with opportunities to meet artists in person, however, we are awaiting further instruction and guidelines from Public Health.

Exact times & format are still to be finalized, however a VIRTUAL TOUR will happen for sure between May 27-30, 2021. Stay tuned to this page for updates (or sign up below).

The Central Island Arts Guide is ready and open for new listings, however! 

We encourage any and all creatives to join in to this growing, robust directory of the Comox Valley and neighbouring areas. It’s not just for visual artists. If you create, you are welcome to join in – performers, designers, writers, historians… help us tell the story of the richness of our creative community.

NEW listings are $160 for a year, plus a membership in Comox Valley Arts, which is $40/year. 

RENEWALS are $90 per year, as long as you retain your membership and your active listing. Renewals of inactive listings are $125.

We are offering a $30 discount on all listing registrations before April 8.

Participation in the Virtual Tour is FREE for all Arts Guide participants. 

You may join in the tour without a listing for $60.

The Virtual Studio Tour will consist of:

  • Scheduled pre-recorded video of artist studios, demos and interviews.
  • Live artists on-camera to answer questions and demonstrate techniques or their process
  • Live and pre-recorded musical performances and author readings
  • Online workshops
  • Slideshows of artist work from throughout the region
  • … and more!
