Town of Huntsville Partners with HAS for Permanent Art Gallery

The Town of Huntsville and the Muskoka Region are known for the amazing artists who call this area home. The arts are a thriving economic passion here with art based events happening throughout the year. The Town of Huntsville has long been a supporter of the arts, and now we have taken it a step further. In a recent Huntsville Doppler article, the Huntsville Art Society’s (HAS) new permanent home was announced. Partner’s Hall will have local artists on display year round.

Part of the Algonquin Theatre, Partners Hall is an exhibit center which has already held five HAS art shows. The organization needed to find a new place to display local artists’ works after The Culture Station was closed. The Town of Huntsville offered Partner’s Hall at a discounted rental rate due to the Huntsville Art Society’s Non-Profit status. With the new permanent agreement to rent the space, HAS will continue to rent Partner’s Hall for less, paying $2,500 prorated for the year for a total of 9 months of use for 2017. The Town of Huntsville will also receive a 20% commission on all sales of art exhibited in the hall. These proceeds are put towards the public art fund for Huntsville, making this a win-win for everyone.

The gallery will also be used for two non HAS events this year. The first will be in March, for the YMCA Muskoka for International Women’s Day. July and August will feature local artist Janine Marson in particular, in honour of the 100th anniversary of Canadian artist Tom Thomson’s death. While HAS artists’ works will be on display the rest of the year, other events will also take place at the Partner’s Hall, providing a wonderful venue of art surrounding community events.

With the Town of Huntsville providing a permanent home to the Huntsville Art Society, we will now have a public gallery open year-round. This exciting partnership reflects how local government and artists come together to support the community as whole, which is another reason we love living here too.
