Art is Everywhere in Prince Edward County

With its thriving community of artists, growers and chefs, it’s easy to see why Prince Edward County has become a top destination for city-dwellers seeking a countryside escape.

Whether it’s your first visit to The County or it's already your home-away-from-home, the Arts Trail offers an excellent way to discover the community’s arts scene. This self-guided trail will lead you to The County’s best art studios and galleries.

Find local artist, Andrew Csafordi and his encaustic beeswax paintings in a century-old barn turned studio / gallery / workshop space. Head down the road to Oeno Gallery and explore a modern gallery featuring exceptional contemporary artists and an outdoor sculpture garden. Lustre and Tarnish, owned by jewelry designer Beverly Dunnington, reflects the sparkle and shine of days gone by. At Wellington Pottery, you’ll find unique porcelain pottery and jewelry – perfect keepsakes of your time in The County. Windswept Studio is home to Tess Moffat’s oil and acrylic paintings that are for lovers of the sky, wind, moon and sun. Find these artists and so many more as you inspire your creative side.

In addition to creativity and artistic talent, the Arts Trail will lead you to some of the most passionate and interesting people in The County. Hear their stories, see their talent and be inspired. Look for the iconic blue Arts Trail signs and stop in for a visit.

Round out your day checking out the Taste Trail – a choose-your-own culinary adventure. Also self-guided, the Taste Trail will lead lovers of food and drink to local wineries, restaurants, breweries, farm stands and more.

About Prince Edward County

The County is a peninsula surrounded by Lake Ontario, separated from the mainland by the Murray Canal. We’re a community of hamlets and villages with deeps roots in farming and agriculture, industry and trade through our waterways, and unique natural and geological formations along our 800km of shoreline. We’ve been welcoming visitors to our beaches for almost 200 years. Today The County is home to artists, entrepreneurs, farmers, wine makers, chefs and all sorts of creative and passionate folks looking to be a part of the rural renaissance that’s taking place here. We invite you to explore the many regions of The County and get to know the lovely places and people you’ll meet along the way. We do have a reputation for capturing hearts and imaginations so you may find yourself visiting for the weekend but considering staying for a lifetime.
