Mini-Clothesline Art Sale

Due to last week’s weather, we are please to have a mini-clothesline sale this Saturday. 

We are excited to be hosting our first ever Clothesline Art Sale. We strive to make art more accessible, and the Clothesline Art Sale is the perfect opportunity for art lovers to purchase a wide range of art at varying prices. We support a diverse range of artists to display and sell their work in an easy and affordable way.  

The wide variety of unframed works will be displayed on a clothesline through the trees and along the edge of the park.

Writer’s Market

Saturday June 1, 2024 | 11-4pm

Words have the power to delight, inspire, provoke, comfort, and unite—as do the authors, journalists and poets who wield them. In honour of Phoebe Watson, an artist and creative writer, the Gallery will be hosting a Writer’s Market Saturday June 1, 2024. Whether it is an edge-of-your-seat adventure, a fascinating memoir, or a tale of true love, stories are what bring us together and shape our understanding of our world. Join fellow writers and readers for a day of literary creativity that celebrates and inspires through written and spoken word.

The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
Departed, never to return.

Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine;
And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
And my fause lover stole my rose,
But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
