Staff were helpful, thorough, engaged in their talk about Homer Watson's history and life and contributions to the city. The grounds were interesting and staff at different places on the grounds. This is a lovely historic home / gallery for the city. It was a pleasure to see this facility at Open Doors Ontario.

Homer Watson's original house is now a museum. This year's show is the Grand national juried quilt show- excellent!

We've done a summer camp and a march break art camp with our kids, and the experience has always been wonderful. They are professional, the kids come home exhausted and happy, they always learn something new and the teachers are great.

The Galley draws people for a number of reasons, one being the painters garden. Bring a stool and your tools and sit in the small garden and paint the indigenous plants. The garden is run by volunteers. For a fee visit the gallery in the house. I have attended for special showings and this is wholly worthwhile then. Once was... More
