Olde Mill Art Gallery & Shoppe

The Olde Mill Art Gallery & Shoppe is  run by and features local artists and artisans.  Each participating artist specializes in a different art form, ranging from wood turning to pastel, watercolour, oil and acrylic paintings, linocut and printmaking,  fused glass, jewellery, quilting, basketry and weaving.

At this time, 10 local artists are being featured in this space.  Each  artist has a generous space to showcase their work as well as space to demonstrate their techniques.

Being able to talk to the artists themselves makes this Gallery very unique.  Inge weaves beautiful scarves and small purses using hand dyed cottons and silks.  People love to ask questions and to watch her at work at her loom.  Karen may also be seen demonstrating her skills creating her unique jewelry using a rare metal called Niobium.   Pat, Grace, Mary and  Catharine are often painting while on duty.  On learning of the inspiration of a particular painting of interest or the location of the subject of a painting may also resonate with the visitor. People are often more inspired to enjoy and/or purchase a painting when are familiar with the subject or location.  Wood turner, George Burt, always has a story to tell about each piece he has created.  Upon learning that the vase or bowl that they are holding in their hand is turned from local wood hundreds of years old is unique!  Andrea will be working on the  original printmaking technique called Linocuts,  a multicolored print made with the use of a single block. Through a series of progressive cuttings, inkings, and printings, the image slowly emerges while the actual block is destroyed. A reduction print can therefore never be reprinted.  Michelle is always busy weaving her hand dyed reeds into baskets, snowflakes and other decor while at the Gallery.  Wendy will describe the process of fusing glass using extremely high heat in her kilns.  The visitor has a special connection with the artist and/or their work and it makes a difference.  Being able to interact with our visitors is rewarding to both the visitor and the artist   Often hearing these stories, and/or knowing the location of the subject of a painting will inspire a patron to buy a piece of art that they can enjoy in their own home or give as a gift.  All the art is unique and cannot be reproduced!

The Gallery is a one-of-a-kind location for this one-of-a-kind artisan shoppe.
