“Merrickville modestly claims to be Canada’s prettiest village – a claim you will find well founded if you visit here either in summer or winter. Merrickville is also home to the Merrickville Artists’ Guild, or MAG as we like to call ourselves. As a group of local artists, we formed a guild in 1984 to help promote our work. Some of the original artists are still with us, along with many others now, who offer a wide variety of interests in art and craft. Most of us are open year round, by chance or appointment, and we still hold our annual Studio Tour and Sale in the fall. At that time if you decide to visit you know for sure we will be at home in our studios waiting to welcome you….. But come by at any time of the year. There’s lots to see and Merrickville is a lovely place to be. There’s a lovely energy here.

For over 30 years, the Merrickville Artists’ Guild annual autumn Studio Tour has given thousands of art lovers a peek into our creative worlds. But a once-a-year event does not satisfy artistic appetites for makers or collectors. And everyone holds a studio tour these days.

This realization prompted an extraordinary idea within the Guild. “We need to reiMAGine ourselves. After all, MAG (as the Merrickville Artists’ Guild is affectionately known) isn’t just a studio tour. We are a talented group of passionate people! We are MAG Artists.” To an artist, we were in total agreement – and this in itself was an epiphany!
