Caledon Public Library

Artful Caledon

In 2014 Caledon Public Library launched our Read Local Caledon initiative as a platform to celebrate our talented homegrown authors, creating awareness in the community and enriching the collection.  This fall 2017 we plan to expand on this initiative with the introduction of Artful Caledon to foster the development of the Caledon art community. 

Our vision for Artful Caledon is to offer innovative programming, creative spaces for display and to design a platform for local artists of all ages to promote their works both in person and virtually. 

If you are interested in being part of Artful Caledon that are a number of ways that we invite local artists to participate:

Virtual Platform

The opportunity to promote yourself and your work on our new virtual platform.  Provide a brief biography/photo (optional); photographs of your work (3-5) and if there are any links to your personal website, projects, exhibits that you would like us to promote. Send this information to programs@caledon.library.on.ca

Official Launch

Join us for the official launch of Artful Caledon as part of a day-long celebration kicking off our 20thannual Love Your Library month.  The event is also celebrating Ontario Culture Days and the Headwaters Arts Festival and will include an art exhibit featuring artwork from our Artful Caledon artists.
