About “Love Art, Love Local and Love Giving”

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary, the Prince Edward County Arts Trail is a self-drive tour of professional, year-round artist studios and galleries and a signature experience for thousands of art lovers, buyers and collectors who come to the County each year.

The Arts Trail’s professional artists and curators create and present unforgettable works in sculpture, paintings, glass, ceramics, silk, photography, jewellery and more.

To compliment this festive season, the artists and curators of the PEC Arts Trail are pleased to announce the launch of their “LOVE ART, LOVE LOCAL AND LOVE GIVING” promotional campaign. From November 14th to December 23rd, 2022, residents and visitors alike are encouraged to shop online or visit member studios and galleries in person to meet the professional artists and curators and see great art in a range of media ... to find perfect gifts for the holiday season!

To plan your visit, go to their website at artstrail.ca, download the bilingual Arts Trail Guide and Map and watch for the distinctive blue Arts Trail signs out front of member studios and galleries. Prior to visiting, everyone is encouraged to check individual Arts Trail member websites for hours of operation and COVID-19 safety protocols. Masks and social distancing continue to be mandatory at all Arts Trail locations.

“From unique and welcoming artist studios to contemporary, rustic and historic galleries, this self-guided tour is always an inspirational adventure,” says Arts Trail Co-Chair, Jim Turner, curator and co-owner of 2Gallery.

The "Love Art, Love Local and Love Giving" holiday promotion allows Arts Trail members to showcase all they have to offer while providing visitors with the opportunity to support the arts, shop local and give the gift of art this holiday season,” he adds.

The Prince Edward County Arts Trail program is operated by a Steering Committee of professional member artists and gallery owners - under the auspices of the Prince Edward County Arts Council and in partnership with the County of Prince Edward and the Ontario Arts Council. The Prince Edward County Arts Council (PECAC) is a registered non-profit organization that has charitable status.
