Central Island Arts Guide & Studio Tour

The Arts Guide a robust online directory of local artists. 

For the time being, our annual Studio Tour is suspended, while we re-imagine how it can be done and still offer the engagement and connection opportunities with the art & artists.

The Central Island Arts Guide is your essential and comprehensive guide to makers, creators and arts service providers between Parksville and Campbell River.

Studio artists include both established and well-known artists – folks who sell their work around the world and are collected in public and private galleries – as well as emerging and experimenting artists who have either just begun their careers or are perhaps shifting to a new genre.

There is something for every taste – paintings, sculpture, pottery, photography, stained glass, fused glass, blown glass, scratchboard, pyrography, puppets, weaving, woodwork, furniture, figurines, big art, little art, art cards, art prints, original art, upcycled art. There’s art that lights up, art you can read and art that floats. There’s realistic, abstract, modern, contemporary, traditional, whimsical, weird and wonderful art.

We encourage you to browse through the website and save your favourite artists, then make a point to go and SEE those artists by setting up appointments for private visits.
