I don’t normally promote events outside Milton but I make an exception for this event just beyond the northwest corner of rural Milton. For an interesting and beautiful experience, take the family for a drive May 23 and 24, 2015 11am-5pm.
It’s a must-see this spring: the fabulous arts festival in the historic village setting of Eden Mills, a gem of southern Ontario. In this village, home of the Eden Mills Writer’s Festival, come and experience a unique variety of visual arts: fine art, fiber art, jewellery, photography, and ceramics. The outdoor streetscape offers the visitors the chance to stroll down Main Street, to shop and converse with accomplished artists.
The café in the community hall will provide a wonderful, homemade lunch. Sit in the Artist’s Green, relax and enjoy the eclectic music and dance performances. The artists in the festival continually strive to create a greener consciousness parallel to the Eden Mills carbon-neutral initiative. Artists’ venues including studios, historic buildings Rivermead and the Mill, the community hall and tents are all indicated on the map in the brochure.
Well known visual artist, Jim Reed, exhibiting in Rivermead states, “Rivermead is a rehabilitated historic structure, among many in this village of serenity, which proudly displays a variety of paintings and sculpture.” The festival provides a “significant social element for the artists which is mutually supportive and inspirational through sharing.”
For a list of the artists with a description of their work and photos, a list of performances and times and brochures visit www.edenmillsartsfestival.com. Also see us on face book.
