In order to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the Peel Region and neighbouring areas, the Alton Mill Arts Centre will be closed to the public until further notice. Our studio artists have access to their individual workspaces, and are available by appointment. During this difficult time, we encourage you to get outside and enjoy all the parks and trails that our beautiful Headwaters Region has to offer. Caledon alone has over 260km of public trails, and you can find trail maps on the Town of Caledon website. Finally, we encourage you to express yourself creatively through the arts - spend some of your time at home making art or music, dancing, writing, and other endeavours. It’s important to build community through storytelling, and use the digital tools that we have available. Tag the Alton Mill on social media and we’ll share our favourites! Our studio artists have some creative social distancing ideas for you including taking your camera for a walk, drawing inspiration through family photo albums, and developing your culinary skills. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram find out more! See you soon.

Due to the closure of the Alton Mill Arts Centre, the Headwaters Gallery will also be closed until further notice. We realize that this is disappointing to both our artists and our patrons however the safety of all concerned is of our utmost priority. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue creating, getting outside to enjoy our beautiful region, and supporting our artists by following them on their social media platforms.

Artists have a tendency to work in isolation while working on their craft - visual artists, performers, musicians and singers, writers, artisans all while practising. Manuela and I have spent each day in our studio -more than usual due to the pandemic circumstances. I know many of you have also been busy honing your crafts.

As this pandemic continues I would like to add some pictures of our colleagues at their craft -to share with all of you. I might not be able to put them all in one notice if I get quite a number of photos -but lets share what we are doing out there. photo-description-name-website of artist We will all meet again.
