In 2008, a small group of Newmarket artists came together and organized an art show centered around historic Main Street. This marked the beginning of the NGA (Newmarket Group of Artists), and our signature event – The Art Walk & Studio Tour. This annual, juried art show is walkable event located at the Old Town Hall & Community Centre, Main Street restaurants & businesses, and artist home studios. This year we celebrate a decade of countless artists, volunteers, sponsors, and art enthusiasts coming together to promote arts & culture in our town. This October 13th & 14th, join the NGA and this year’s 36 juried artists at the 10th Annual Newmarket Art Walk & Studio Tour.
The Newmarket Group of Artists is very pleased to announce an exclusive show for our artists at the onset of this summer’s cottage season. The Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery in Sutton, Ontario is hosting a group exhibition geared to Lake Simcoe cottage owners.
The Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery is an accredited, fully operational art gallery located in the town of Sutton, Ontario, the hub of the southern Lake Simcoe cottage country. According to their curator, the bulk of the gallery’s sales come from local wealthy, affluent cottage owners who wish to purchase art to furnish their summer homes.
For this show, the theme is “Water”, because this is a popular subject for many of the gallery’s customers who purchase water-related art pieces to decorate their cottages. Of course, the “Water” theme is open to interpretation so it can lend itself to many artistic applications.
