Doors Open | 2014

September 20, 2014  |  10 am – 4 pm

We are pleased to announce our participation in Doors Open Waterloo Region 2014! Doors Open Waterloo Region is a free heritage and architecture tour of special, occasionally “secret” places in the region, held on the third Saturday in September every year. This year, in addition to seeing the Watson Collection, contemporary exhibitions and Watson’s painting equipment, visitors can go behind the scenes inside the coach house, and also the new archival storage area for the safekeeping of Watson’s paintings. The House & Gallery celebrates Watson’s creative spirit by stimulating visual arts appreciation and practice through its programs, exhibitions and events. During Doors Open, cross Homer Watson Blvd. for Homer Watson’s Youth in Upper Doon’s “Oregon” Heritage Walking Tour (site #21) to see and to hear stories of Watson’s childhood home, other neighbourhood heritage sites, and early village life.
