Explore Stratford’s visual arts scene
It’s no surprise that every art is honoured here in Canada’s premier centre of arts and culture. Stratford has a lively arts scene that encompasses everything you can think of, including fine arts, Native arts, and crafts in every medium.
During the summer, many artists and artisans participate in Art in the Park along the banks of the Avon River. Every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday you can spend hours wandering among their beautiful original creations.
Gallery Stratford is located in one of our most gorgeous settings--a converted 19th-century pump house nestled within a glade of trees. Just a short walk from the Festival Theatre and the downtown heritage district, the Gallery presents selections from its permanent collection as well as travelling exhibitions all year-‘round. It also offers workshops, classes, and children's programmes.
