Treehouse Artist Residency

Treehouse Artist Residency


Treehouse Gallery is an artist-run alternative studio and gallery that supports independent artists in creating new networks. They are an art initiative located in Muskoka , a centre of Canadian tradition for arts and culture. Their mission is to encourage a creative space where both emerging and established artists can benefit from the abundance of nature and thriving local arts near Algonquin Park.The Muskoka region was once a inspirational hub for Group of Seven members; their legacy is popular with the residents here, some of having personally talked to these artists. Location ideal if researching nature art traditions.

They are equipped with a painting studio and a gallery space (both 600sq ft). Artists, usually self-directed, may exhibit and use the opportunity to explore, relax, talk to local artist community and begin new artworks. The Gallery provides some help for advertising during shows.
