2. About Arts Place

with one comment

In March 1992 Joyce Honsberger‘s idea for an art gallery found fertile ground
in the creative spirits of eleven Niagara artists who took the leap of faith and formed
the original cooperative that launched Arts Place Gallery.

The well-lit gallery, built in a former gas station near the intersection of King & Main Streets
in Old Humberstone, is always welcoming, displaying paintings, sculpture, pottery, glass, jewellery and more.
The Gallery averages nine new exhibitions a year.  At times it hosts art workshops for adults and children
and poetry readings.  The mandate is to encourage, support and share experience and information.

  1. My sister and I did the studio tour on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. All the artists we met were wonderful, informative and very dynamic. I want to thank all who organized it, posted the wonderful map and artist info on the website and I especially want to thank all the artists and galleries who opened their doors to the public.
    I sincerely hope this becomes an annual event. Newly returned to the Niagara Peninsula from Arizona, it made me very happy to see such a well organized event and meet such very talented artists.
    Thank you very much.
