Established in 1992, the Guelph Artisans Store is a fine arts and crafts retail outlet operated by the Guelph Creative Arts Association (GCAA). All items are original, one of a kind items and only a small sample of the works created by our local member artists including: Oils, acrylics, and watercolour paintings, photography, woodworking, textile crafts, pottery, jewellery, stained glass, and metal work. The large selection of unique greeting cards will not be found elsewhere! Many depict images of local scenes and are left blank inside so you can create your own unique message.

Run totally by volunteers as part of their agreement to display and sell in the store, there is always an artisan on hand to answer your questions. If you have a question outside of their own artistic discipline, they can direct you to the artisan who can answer it for you.


Want to sell at the Artisans Store????

  • You must first be a member of the Guelph Creative Arts Association (GCAA)
  • A three-member panel will want to see photos of, or actual samples of your work. They will decide if your work is in keeping with the quality and type of works to be displayed in the store. All jury decisions are final.
  • In addition to the jury process, there must be space available for your work in the store.
  • Wall space may be rented in either a 42 x 96 inch or 21 x 96-inch-wide sections. Shelving units and floor space allocations vary in size and are wholly dependent on the amount of space needed to suitably show your body of work.
  • To be viable, the store needs to offer a diversity of works in price and type. If there are already artisans in the store offering much the same kind of product, your chances of gaining a spot may be limited and so you may be placed on a waiting list for your type of work.
  • If successful in gaining a space, you will be asked to sign a contract for a minimum of three months.
  • Volunteering a minimum of four hours per month in the store is also required.

If you are interested and would like to have your work submitted for consideration, drop by the store, or give us a call at (519) 829-3792.
