Homer Watson House & Gallery presents Crescendo, an exhibition celebrating students from the Senior class of Eastwood Collegiate Institute’s Integrated Arts Program. This annual show provides a unique opportunity for art students to create and curate an exhibition at Homer Watson House & Gallery.

Crescendo represents a rebirth of inspiration and fortitude of spirit following the adversities of the pandemic. The artists are emerging from hardships stronger and continuing to grow.

This show invites viewers to join in the journey as we rise towards a triumphant new world of possibility. The tune of our art will guide us to the limelight; our Crescendo.

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.
