We are an art gallery and art centre in the historic Carnegie building. We offer a showcase for local artisans, a teaching area for workshops/classes and a group meeting space for local groups in the area of North Middlesex, Ontario, Canada.
The gallery is open to the public for viewing or individuals can purchase an annual membership for $20. Membership supplies individuals with $2 discounts to all events or activities sponsored by the gallery.
Rebecca Bender (Quilter & Cards)
Rebecca brings a love of colour and an enjoyment of putting pieces together in her work as a quilter. Whether going to her fabric stash or to her scrap basket, she enjoys pulling together what she has to make a variety of items from mug rugs, table toppers and bags to hangings and throws. Most of her work is hand quilted but she is beginning to do some quilting on her long arm quilting machine.
Rebecca finds the same satisfaction in cardmaking; quilt pattern cards, notes, and everyday cards.
If you have something in mind, she is open to commissioned work.
Esther Conway (Demin Quilting & Cards)
I grew up in a large family on a local farm and had a hard time to find ‘my place’. Creating art and crafts became my happy place. It still brings me purpose and joy. I am extremely resourceful and I get so excited when I can create beauty and useful items from the discarded.”
Mary Margaret Thompson (Photo Cards & Quilting)
Mary Margaret is an avid nature photographer who turns her love of photography into greeting cards. Her naturalist bent also takes something often overlooked (stones) and turns them into stunning pieces of jewelry.
