“The best part of the PCAFA is the exposure gained from the Studio Tour event, the Studio Tour brochure and the website.” (Paulette Melanson, artist)

“When I first joined the Festival, my interest was as a gallery owner looking to promote my business. The Studio Tour has done that beyond my expectations, and I believe that meeting fellow artists through my involvement with the Festival has also led people to know my work and eventually to the gallery. I could never have anticipated meeting the wide community of artists that is out there and the friendships that I have made. My Festival friends are the ones who “get” what I do.” (Philip Hodges, Twelve Acre Hill Gallery)
