Recognized as a hub for thriving creativity and a growing art scene, Prince Edward County is filled with talented artists and beautiful galleries. This list is only a small look at what The County’s art scene has to offer, but here are a few of our favourites:

 

Small Pond Arts

 

A combination of creative minds, Krista and Milé have built an art gallery and artist residency in The County. Located minutes from downtown Picton on an 87-acre art farm, this space offers walking trails that feature some of the great art installations they have. Their artist residency is self-guided but exists in the beautiful space they have created. For 2018, the gallery will be available by appointment only, but is worth a visit if you get the chance, so be sure to visit their website to find out how!

 

Sybil Frank Gallery

 

A small, but eclectic space located in Wellington, this gallery represents over 30 artists. This multifunctional gallery was named after the founder’s grandmother with the hopes of showcasing art that emulated the bold and daring personality. With such an array of artists represented by the gallery, the variety of artwork is immense. Looking to plan a visit to The County? Stay in one of the Sybil Frank Suites, which puts you in close proximity to all of what downtown Wellington has to offer. Check out their website for more information about the art, artists, and how you can enjoy the Sybil Frank Gallery.

 

Oeno Gallery

 

With over 15 years in Prince Edward County, this gallery presents contemporary art exhibits of internationally recognized artists on the Huff Estates. Since they opened in 2004, they have focused on spotlighting mid-career and senior Canadian artists who have received international recognition for their talents. This spring, take a visit to Oeno Gallery and enjoy the Sculpture Garden that includes an arrangement of dynamic art installations.

 

The Bald Photographer

With a bold mix of photography styles, The Bald Photographer has established himself as one of Prince Edward County’s top photographers. Graham Davies began his career in the early 90’s when he initially opened his gallery in Toronto. After six years of city living, he chose to move his gallery east to The County. His photography style varies depending on his subject, where he uses digital photography for his commercial and colour work, but favours film when working on personal projects – especially portrait and fine art that he hand prints. You can visit his gallery in Cherry Valley and can also see a few of his phenomenal pieces on his website.

 

Spark Box Studio

 

By focusing on creating an affordable, focused environment that encourages exploration, experimentation and the cultivation of new ideas, Spark Box Studio have created a community studio and residency that appeal to all local artists. By providing the access to resources some artists may not otherwise have, they are allowing the arts community to connect through this space. Their residency program focuses on providing artists with career-building material, with over a dozen different paths that artists can choose from. For more information about their residency program, take a look at all of the information provided on their website.
