Collingwood, ON [September 9, 2021] – The Collingwood Art Crawl returns on Saturday, September 18, 2021 with music and art throughout historic Downtown Collingwood. Presented by the Town of Collingwood and Butter Gallery, the free, self-guided art walk, will feature artists and musicians from across the region inside more than 30 venues on Saturday afternoon. 

Shops, boutiques, restaurants, and storefronts will host visual artists featuring photography, jewelry, painting, mixed media and more, and musical acts from across Ontario. This all-original music features a range of genres, from folk to jazz, and everything in between. 

An Online Gallery will introduce crawlers to each registered artist and musician with individual profiles featuring artist biographies, images of current works, links to performances, social media and online stores.  

A map available at official venues, as well as online, will provide details on which artists and musicians will participate in-person and at which locations. Venues will be following all COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Crawl hours have been extended and outdoor components have been removed to alleviate large gatherings.    

The Collingwood Art Crawl is presented by the Town of Collingwood and Butter Gallery and generously sponsored by the Collingwood Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA), The Jen Scholte Team, Fram/Slokker, and The New Shipyards.
