  • About

    The Headwaters Arts Gallery features the work of the best emerging and established artists of the Headwaters Region. It is the perfect destination for art lovers and those wanting to bring home something unique and handmade.   

    Current show...  Meticulously curated, Headwaters Art Gallery is excited to present their first show of 2016, Small Wonders! Located on the main floor of the historic Alton Mill Arts Centre, this exhibition is on from January 6th – February 14th 2106.

    Small Wonders is a show about small art – big ideas!  The show features two and three-dimensional works that are 12”x12” in size. The 15 participating artists are challenged to use their creativity, sense of design and imagination to produce works that fit this show’s theme. This salon style show, with an eclectic mix of wall art and sculpture, encourages viewers to create movement within the gallery; walking between sculptures, taking a close look at art, stepping back to view multiple works at once. The small-scale nature of the art invites viewers in, allowing them to discover details about the work that would go unnoticed from a distance. This opens up communication between the artist, their message and the viewer - giving them an opportunity to interpret what the piece means to them and ask questions along the way. A truly unique and intimate experience! 

    Beat the winter blues and make your way to Headwaters Arts Gallery at the Alton Mill to experience Small Wonders. All are welcome to drop in the gallery and enjoy great art!
