Experience Art in the Hills – just steps outside Toronto’s back door!

Art in the HillsLocated just 45 minutes north of Toronto lies the scenic Hills of Headwaters region – home to a vibrant and inspired arts community!

Known for rolling hills, deep valleys, spectacular fall colours and the unique headwaters of four major river systems, it seems our exciting landscape has stirred the artist soul.

In the Hills of Headwaters there are over 200 artists working in every media imaginable. Painters, potters, glassblowers, woodcarvers, weavers, sculptors and jewellers all create here – in styles that range from classical to contemporary to avant-garde!

Every season studio tours and art exhibitions are launched! And every autumn the Headwaters Arts Festival kicks off its 17-day celebration of the region’s finest artists, artisans and performers with 65 events in over 30 venues.

History, beauty and art are everywhere here in the Hills of Headwaters! The spectacular landscapes of the region offer unending inspiration for our artists and, in some cases, the raw materials for the arts they create! In every village, town, hamlet and indeed throughout the countryside, you will sample as much diversity in the art as you will in the landscape.

So request a map and take to the Hills of Headwaters to discover Art in the Hills! Every rural back road, from Creemore to Terra Cotta, is a potential scenic drive and a chance to sample the magnificent landscapes so often transformed on the artist’s canvas. Century homes, schoolhouses and historic buildings rejuvenated into studio space offer a glimpse of our proud heritage. Along with world-class restaurants, professional theatre, museums and unlimited recreational possibilities, the region embodies a unique beauty. And amidst the beauty and history, you will experience first-hand where our inspired artists live, work….and play!
