The variety of art at this place is absolutely astonishing. There is pottery, jewelry, woodworking, needlepoint, paintings, and on and on. It really is inspiring. I have been "driving by" this place for years and years wanting to stop but hubby was always in a hurry to get where we were heading. On Good Friday, our trailer bearings fell off and we broke down in front of this coop! Of course everything is closed, but no, they were open! Yay! Two wonderful women guided us to the most helpful man to repair our trailer to get back on the road. They truly went beyond what I expected. So all Easter weekend I kept thinking of a clay piece, so on Easter Monday on our way back home, we stopped in and I bought it :) Continue the wonderful work Coop artisans!!

My favourite place to visit when I am visiting family in Deep River. The artisans on this co-op are of the highest standard and I never come away empty handed. I like to buy presents there for friends and I have several pieces of jewelry from there. It is so worth a visit.

There is a remarkable variety of talented artists in the Ottawa Valley, many of them local to Deep River. This is a good place to find one-of-a-kind times for special gifts in wood, ceramics, metalwork as well as jewelry, textiles, photography, prints and paintings. The store is staffed by artists and they are always interested in discussing the work on show. Definitely with a visit.

Fabulous carved wooden bowls and a collection of jewelry. Many local artists participate, so worth a stop if you are passing by.

I have been visiting Deep River for the last 17 years at least twice a year. Invariably we stop in at "The Artisans" and we always find a few pieces of art that we really like. Sometimes we buy, sometimes we regret not buying. There is always something new and intriguing. Frequently we see work of Artisans that have just relocated to the Ottawa Valley. The selection of art covers quite a range and includes some work that I have never seen before. The gallery is located right on Highway 17 and easy to access. Prices are considerably less exorbitant than in the greater Toronto area. If you appreciate art, make sure you drop in.

Right next door to the store that sells outdoor gear. This beautiful shop has an abundance of fabulous items, hand crafted, ranging from a few dollars to expensive. It is amazing to see the talent that abounds in the area. Lovely jewellery and glass items, painted silk scarves and home decor.

This art cooperative has quality pieces at reasonable prices. Many are quite unique, with a selection of jewellery, fabric art, stained glass, wood, pottery, and cards. I know I'm missing some, so stop in and take a look. The shop is right on the highway so there is no detour to get there and a friendly artist is always on duty.
