KLCOA and the participating exhibitors will be making a contribution to the Haliburton Highlands' Arts Council's Artists in the Schools program.
The Kennisis Lake Cottage Owners' Association (KLCOA), representing >500 cottagers, is pleased to announce that "Art on the Dock", a studio-type tour featuring more than 30 artists and artisans at 20 locations around Kennisis Lake will be held from 11-4 on Sat & Sun, July 11 & 12, 2015.
Artists and artisans will be showing (and selling) their fine art and crafts on their docks, decks and in their cottages, lofts and garages from 11 to 4 each day. Visitors are welcome to tour the lake by boat or by road - Art on the Dock signs will designate the exhibitor locations.
Exhibitors include water base painters, painters in oil, potters, photographers, quilters, fine woodworkers, decorative sign painters, mosaic tile workers, soap makers, sculptors, birdhouse makers, song and poetry writers, candle makers and artists in orgonite. Half of the artists are professionals with many talented hobbyists also participating. Noted professional artists include painters Ian Ball, Shelley Beach, Marleen Campbell, Ray Dugan, Tracey Lee Green, Wilf McOstrich, and Maurice Snelgrove.
KLCOA is delighted to add this cultural dimension to the social, recreational, environmental and economic initiatives and programs that KLCOA offers its members. The Arts are an important part of the Haliburton Highlands community and we have so many talented artists and artisans living and cottaging on our lakes. We are pleased to highlight this creative resource to the community.
