The Tour is free and self-guided. A free, keep-sake ‘Passport’ includes examples of the work of each artist or gallery participating in the Tour and a map of where studios are located. Studio Tour Passports are available at

  • the Visitor’s Centre in the plaza at Joyce & Alberni
  • Artique Artist Co-operative (4722 Marine)
  • Tug-ghum Gallery (Lund Hotel) or
  • Sunspot Gallery (9398 Hwy 101 South of Town)

Alternately, a Directory and maps of the studios and galleries can be printed from this website.

Powell River had its first area-wide studio tour in August, 2005. Organized by Alfred Muma, a well-known local artist, the Tour included 28 locations representing over 50 artists. With an estimated 244 people taking the Tour, it was deemed a success and the decision was made to make it an annual event.
