KBTST Virtual Tour 2020
This year is a different one as we all know! Everyone, artists included, have had to make some changes. We’ve even learned more “tech” skills along the way.
Learning is a good thing! It includes challenges, at times frustration but in the end it’s benefits benefit us all. Our virtual tour and walkabout is bridging these challenges (we hope).
So, check out our Tour on Facebook, go on the Walkabout to see our art and visit our local businesses – you’ll be glad you did!

A lot of times, our visitors don’t know what goes on behind the scenes to plan an arts event. Well… it takes a lot of work and dedication to pull this off, even after a number of years. 2020 will be our 18th year!
To start we all take on “jobs” that are pivotal to its operation. Chairperson, treasurer, brochure creation, advertising, social media, website content (just some to mention) right along to our signs committee who makes sure our signs are out in time and placed in strategic spots. These positions are non paid (we are not a business) but vital to the success of our annual Tour.
We love what we do – its a labour of love!
January Meeting – things are off and running!

Last night we had are first meeting of the year and have set 2018 dates of Oct. 20 and Oct. 21. While we have some departures, we also have new faces in attendance. We would like to welcome Mira back; she has been busy learning new skills and will showcase those skills on the Tour. Larissa, daughter of Vicky Abrams-Ogg is a new member – she has been approved by the jury committee just this morning. There are a couple more, but still need to submit their applications. Once they are on board, I will post about them.
Sooo excited for this new year!
Cheers! Kelly M
Our back story…
Posted on October 13, 2017
The KBTST was founded by Natalie Prevost in 2002. She was a potter in the area at the time. She felt the need to establish “something” that would promote the local art and artisans in Woolwich Township. That is how the Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour was born! In fact we still have one artist who has been with the Tour since its inception – Irene Dickau. She works in oils and creates beautiful fabric works. Irene truly is the “glue that binds”.
On our website you will see the West Montrose covered bridge. It is one of the few remaining covered bridges and holds historical standing. What better symbol then a piece of local history…
