Open Studios

See original art in the setting it was created

Visit artists in their studio environments where local artists offer you a peek into their world; where you will experience art in many media - paintings, ceramics, sculpture, watercolour, printmaking, glass art, jewellery-making, wearable art and more.

Most of our artists welcome visits at any time of the year. Check the webpages for visiting information for each artist, and call or e-mail for an appointment.
In addition to finished work and work-in-progress that you can see in the studio, many artists also accept private commissions. If you have enquiries related to the purchase of artist works, please contact individual artists.

Mini Tours Available Year-Round

Plan with us a special mini tour for your group. If you are organizing a convention or special event or a fundraiser, or belong to a group looking for special cultural programs to take in here in Winnipeg, let us help you organize a specialized mini tour of 5 or 6 local artists' studios.

Get in your car, join a group of friends, or do a walking tour of the areas listed on the map. You will be able to meet and chat with artists and see the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios. You will also have the opportunity to visit galleries in the city who promote and show the work of local artists.

Be sure to phone the artist or e-mail ahead to check times and availability or to make an appointment. This option lets you explore and shop at your convenience.
