August 18 - September 8
Public Reception: Saturday, August 18, 1pm-4pm
Remarks and the opening of the time box at 2pm

Back in 1998, 20 members of Canada’s original artist run studio tour were asked to create one original piece of artwork to place in the time capsule celebrating the first 20 years of The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour. Now 20 years later, the current members of The Muskoka Autumn Studio tour will be opening the Time Capsule at the Chapel Gallery on August 18 between 1pm to 4 pm.  

The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour is the oldest self- guided studio tour in Canada and the member run tour has included many of Canada’s finest full time professional artists.

The artists of The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour have included potters, weavers, wood turners, furniture makers, glassblowers, painters of landscapes and fine art, jewellers and ironworkers and so much more.  

These artists open their studios, workspaces and showrooms to the general public offering a rare insight into the creative process. Each artist is encouraged to interact with and engage visitors with demonstrations and insights into their individual artistic and creative process.  

Since its inception in 1978, The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour has attracted tens of thousands of visitors to Muskoka to spend a few days enjoying the fall colours, exploring the beauty of Muskoka and viewing the inspiring work of some of Canada’s finest artists.
