Artists on Location 2016
This is an annual event where artists and artisans are embedded in local businesses, studios, galleries, restaurants, homes and green spaces in the vicinity of Creemore’s Mill Street.
The event is anchored by a group exhibit in Creemore’s “small hall”, the Station on the Green, showing one piece from each participating artist and featuring a large map (and volunteers) to help you find artists around town, all within walking distance.
We offer funding by application to community groups and individuals in Creemore and the surrounding area for projects in harmony with our mandate.
Watch for the annual call for applicants … the deadline is the end of January.

The Artists in the School program is a series of visual art classes for young people in grades four to eight at Nottawasage & Creemore Public School.
Each spring, Gail Caswell (Board member) and Jordan Eveland bring a hands-on creative experience to roughly 120 students at the Nottawasaga & Creemore Public School. This year, the series focuses on acrylic painting on canvas.
Artist Sara Sniderhan wanted to honour the elders in her adopted village.
A year in the making, the idea evolved into a series of portraits and a limited edition book that included the life stories of the portrait subjects.
The portraits were created in various media by Sara, Peter Adams, Martha Bull, Juliet Jancso, David Bruce Johnson, Andrej Kovacs, Peter Mitchell, Jim Paget and Christopher Roberts.
When the valley lights up with the richness of autumn, the time is right to spend a weekend exploring rich colours and textures created by local artists and artisans. Enjoy restaurants, cafés and a pub serving all day, and stay overnight in a local inn or bed-and-breakfast.
Artists on Location
The Artists on Location are the heart of the festival, installed in studios, restaurants and historic buildings — even in the grocery store parking lot.
Artist Peter Adams created a multi-faceted installation celebrating the rich agricultural heritage of the Creemore area while inviting discussion about our relationship with landscape and our relationship with waste.
The found-object assemblage consisted entirely of discarded fragments and excavated objects left behind by the generations that have lived on a modest Mulmur Township farm over the last 160 years.
