Welcome to the 25th Annual Thanksgiving Studio Tour. We are thrilled to welcome you to the Silver Anniversary of the Thanksgiving Studio Tour on beautiful Gabriola Island. Nestled in the Salish Sea, a 20 minute ferry ride from Nanaimo and worlds away from urban centres, we invite you to experience our island and its art. Every year the artists of Gabriola open their studios for 3 days and invite the world to see the fruits of their labour. Artists are enthusiastic about the changing times and ready to share their paintings, sculptures, textile arts, pottery, jewelry, and so much more. Once you step off the ferry, you will feel creativity in the air, and see first-hand how the island is an incredible inspiration.
Artists’ studios are open 10am to 5pm, October 9th to 11th, 2021 and various hours or by appointment throughout the year. If you’ve done the Tour before you know how challenging it is to visit all the studios in just three days. Pick up a copy of the guide and visit theartsongabriola.ca to view the work of each artists to help pan your trip.
