A Farewell Message from Elene Freer, Executive Director
In 1990, when Muskoka Arts & Crafts invited me to work for the organization, I had no idea that, more than 31 years later, it would be my life’s career. Over the years, I have worked diligently, enthusiastically and tirelessly to develop meaningful programs for both the members as well as our local and extended community.
After a great deal of reflection, I have made the decision to retire as Executive Director for Muskoka Arts & Crafts. My last day on the job will be September 17, 2021.
On March 16, our president, Shanandoah Kidd, was interviewed by Your TV Muskoka about the upcoming 44th Annual Spring Members’ Show that is taking place online. Watch what Shanandoah said about this exciting new venture for Muskoka Arts & Crafts.
The Muskoka Arts & Crafts online store offers works from our members across a range of mediums. Take home a bit of Muskoka or keep up with your favourite artist.
The Chapel Gallery is temporarily closed
To ensure Muskoka Arts & Crafts continues to provide a safe experience for all our artists, visitors, volunteers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chapel Gallery remains closed to visitors until further notice. We are reevaluating how to present exhibitions at this time. Staff are available by telephone and email during regular business hours (Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am–1 pm and 2 pm–5 pm).
Thank you for your understanding and support. These are difficult times—we urge you to stay healthy, help one another and do what you can to make this a better world!
