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.

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.

This is an important fundraiser for our ongoing programs. A Creemore tradition, this springtime gathering is a key fundraiser for the Creemore Festival of the Arts, our Artists in the School program, heritage installations, and our arts and heritage community grants.
This longstanding series brings warmth to a winter Sunday afternoon while deepening our understanding of history.
The 2015 speaker was Charles Garrard, author of Petun to Wyandot: The Ontario Petun from the Sixteenth Century (Canadian Museum of History/University of Ottawa Press, 2014). The book, winner of the Ontario Archaeological Society Award for Excellence in Publishing, distills a lifetime of research on the now-dispersed Wyandot tribe, once called the Petun, who encountered the French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1616 in the area now known as Creemore.
