In 2014, the Board of Directors established the Best in Show awards for the Summer Show as a way to recognize the excellence of our Summer Show artists. The awards are based on two factors that are key for success in any art and craft show: product and presentation. 

BENOIT ROYER - Best in Show

As a young child, Benoit drew for hours. After graduating from the University of Quebec in Montreal, he designed sets for theatre and artistic directors and produced props for Cirque du Soleil. The recipient of numerous awards, Benoit established his own studio, Éclisse, a creative place where wood was chosen as a subject of exploration.

This was Benoit's first year at Muskoka Arts & Crafts' Summer Show.

DANIEL GALLANT - Award of Excellence

After 30 years in the home decorating field, specializing in artisan faux finishes and art wallpaper installation, Daniel Gallant has adjusted his sails to create decorative driftwood sailboats. 

Each vessel is unique, handcrafted using driftwood and sticks cut by beavers that he collects along the shores of Muskoka's beautiful lakes and rivers.  


This was Daniel's first year exhibiting at Muskoka Arts & Crafts' Summer Show.  Pictured receiving the award on behalf of Daniel is his wife.


Shayna and Nicole create pillows and rustic furniture. 

This was their first time exhibitors at Muskoka Arts & Crafts’ Summer Show.
