Upcoming Exhibition of Muskoka Heritage

"Everything But the Bathroom Sink", acrylic on canvas, 16x24, from a house before restoration in Gravenhurst 
Award of Excellence winner, Muskoka Arts and Crafts, 2010

Coming up on October 9th, 2010, the Auburn Gallery of Fine Art will be hosting a small exhibition of paintings, photographs and portraits by Helene Adamson, Michelle Basic Hendry and the late Henry Fry (via the Gravenhurst archives).

The exhibition called "Legacy" will feature the faces and places of historic Muskoka - from the homestead of the man to discover gold in Gravenhurst, to photos of the town mid 20th century and oil paintings of some of Gravenhurst's most well known industrialists from the 19th century.

If you find yourself in Muskoka for Thanksgiving weekend, please drop by for a little window into the history of Muskoka. The Auburn Gallery is at 190 Royal St. in Gravenhurst - the home of the late Henry Fry. See you there!
