The Association of Port Stanley Artists is a group of artists and artisans living in the beautiful Lake Erie village of Port Stanley, Ontario. We have been established for six years now and are going strong. APSA artists work in a variety of different mediums including oil, watercolour, acrylic, mixed media, photography, glass, textiles, and sculpture. We are dedicated to creating original art and artisan works of top quality.
Our outdoor summer shows have been a staple of the busy tourist season in Port Stanley. Last year, we decided to do an exclusive indoor group show at the Royal Canadian Legion in September of 2017. It was such a success that we are going to do it again!
APSA is excited to announce our second annual Art Show and Sale at the Royal Canadian Legion early in the fall!
