Water is the driving force in nature – Leonardo da Vinci
The County is surrounded by water, has several lakes, rivers and streams and yet is one of the driest Counties in Ontario.
There can be many themes on Water. It falls in many guises from a gentle Irish mist, to golf ball size hailstones, to drifts of pristine snow. We drink it as is, infused with coffee or Scotch, tea or lemons. We play on it, skating on frozen ponds, swim lengths in a pool, and who hasn’t lobbed water balloons at passing canoes. Water supports and gives life to everything on earth, from water lilies on a tranquil pond to massive hydro electric plants near James Bay.
To that end we are honouring Water in all its shapes and forms. Works of art that celebrate Water and all its incarnations will be presented. Over forty County artists are featured in the show in a variety of media. Acrylic to Watercolour, Embroidery and Quilting, Jewellery and Glass, Ceramic, Stone and Metal.
Enjoy a glass of wine in Black Prince’s Tasting Room and feast your eyes on ‘Water’ in the Art Cellar.
