True North Gallery | The Music Gallery of Fine Art
23 Griffin Street (Waterdown) | 5-7PM
Our next Creative Exchange will be taking place in Waterdown at the True North Gallery at 23 Griffin Street.
True North Gallery, also known as The Music Gallery of Fine Art, is located within and operated by the owners of the acclaimed independent Canadian record label, True North Records, founded in 1969, and still active as the label home to Bruce Cockburn, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Murray McLauchlan, and many other popular musicians.
The gallery is located in the historic Victorian village of Waterdown, Ontario, on the Niagara escarpment. On display and available for sale are over 100 one-of-a-kind original, and rare limited edition art by both world famous, and not so famous musicians, whose creativity is equally evident in their art as it is in their music.
The gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9AM – 5PM, Saturday 11am – 6pm, except statutory holidays. The gallery is open to the public, there is no fee for admission, and all are welcome.
The gallery will also be a large part of the annual Waterdown ArtsFEST, a 3-day music and art festival in its second year. For more information on performers, attractions, and vendor or volunteer opportunities, visit http://artsfest.ca/.
The Creative Exchange Networking Event is a casual get together for creative individuals, professionals and entrepreneurs from the Film, Digital & Design Media, Music and other creative industries. Join us to reconnect with people or meet new contacts from our creative community.
As always, this is a FREE-to-attend event — all are welcome.
