Kawartha Artists’ Gallery and Studio (KAGS)
The Kawartha Artists’ Gallery and Studio (KAGS) was created in 1990 by artists, for artists, aspiring artists and those interested in the arts. Our members work in a wide variety of media and styles. KAGS has also had a strong history in photography.
We have a unique gallery and studio entirely run as a co-operative by volunteers. KAGS is a non-profit organization funded and managed by its 100 plus member artists.
The gallery has exhibitions throughout the year which change every two to five weeks. The studio is currently used for workshops and weekly drop in art sessions. The studio, through arrangement with KAGS, is also available for use by other art groups.
Members and non-members alike can rent the gallery for individual or group shows during the year.
Each May we hold our “Best of High School Art Show” to celebrate and offer awards for works created by the art students of high schools throughout the area.
This, our second year to participate in SPARK, will feature member artists’ photography in two categories. Category One is Art Photography by itself and Category Two is Reference Photography with the Painting it inspired.
We are excited to be part of the wonderful Festival of Photography that SPARK 2018 is and look forward to welcoming all SPARK visitors to KAGS.
