Minden/Haliburton, Ontario (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
As Autumn begins, http://Made-In-Haliburton.ca, the renowned online art marketplace based in the Haliburton Highlands, is partnering with local artists and organizations for several enthralling events. Locals are encouraged to take advantage of these powerful cultural experiences and enticing offers.
Made-In-Haliburton.ca, an online art gallery and marketplace that sends Canadian art pieces around the world, is engaging in several special events for locals of the Ontario area. This fall, the online art distributor is working with diverse organizations in order to promote Ontario’s rich local art culture. In a very exciting limited-time event, As part of the Algonquin Highlands branch of Ontario Doors Open, The Art Hive is featuring a special Made-In-Haliburton.ca exhibition that should fascinate any patron of the arts. The Art Hive, a Heritage building, has been hosting the “Open Doors Algonquin Highlands” celebration since last week, which will run through September 27th at 4pm. This beautiful, historical location can be found at 10239 Hwy 118, Haliburton, Ontario, and their friendly staff can be contacted by calling 705-754-0021 .
Don & Marie Gage, the owners of Made-In-Haliburton.ca, are extremely excited to be working with the artisan collective to bring this time limited event to Ontario locals, as most of the work is only showcased online. Made-In-Haliburton.ca is an online gallery of various art forms and media, and exhibiting their work in a beautiful physical gallery location allows them to reach the Ontario art community like never before. While Made-In-Haliburton.ca has developed a vaunted reputation as online purveyors of art in many forms, the showcasing of local Ontario talent exclusively for local art enthusiasts is an opportunity to bridge the two worlds in a unique and personal way.
This limited event is an exclusive look inside the art community of Ontario, and Made-In-Haliburton.ca is encouraging locals to take this opportunity to engage the artisan collective known as The Art Hive. Made-In-Haliburton.ca was created as an online marketplace in order to provide a wider audience for Ontario artistic talent, and every artist that is featured with Made-In-Haliburton.ca has been judged by the Arts Council of the Haliburton Highlands, ensuring the highest level of craftsmanship and quality. These artists have perfected their craft for decades, and the technique and insight they provide to guests of the autumn gallery is unparalleled.
Furthermore, the featured art and artists alike are not limited to oil on canvas. Made-In-Haliburton.ca is very well-known to art enthusiasts as a company that showcases art in all its forms. The online gallery features paintings, metal and wood sculptures, photography, pottery, music, and jewelry among many others. This unique aspect of Made-In-Haliburton.ca, the showcasing of various types of media and forms of art, is certainly displayed in the summer gallery series as well. Those with a love for all art forms will certainly not be disappointed, as the limited-time exhibition will feature many different themed pieces.
Even with this enthralling event taking place, Made-In-Haliburton.ca is involved with several other local events and is also promoting a very special online contest. The acclaimed online art gallery is working to promote a local concert series, offering an auction of a sought after piece of work by John Leonard, and is holding a special promotion where enthusiasts can win one of three watercolour paintings by the talented Gord Jones.
The Haliburton County Folk Society is offering (http://www.madeinhaliburton.ca/brands/Haliburton-County-Folk-Society.html) the first of what will prove to be an amazing array of talented performers with J. P. Cormier, a well-known Maritime Musician. October 21st at the Dominion Hotel in Minden Ontario will be the place to be if you wish to engage with this well-known musician in an intimate setting with a limited number of tickets available.
In an effort to raise money for the Minden Cultural Centre Foundation John Leonard, whose work is held in over 40 public galleries and public collections, has donated a lithograph that is being auctioned off at http://www.madeinhaliburton.ca/pages/Silent-Auction.html beginning Sept 27th, 2012.
