Fall in the hills has become synonymous with the Headwaters Arts Festival – and its headline event, the Festival Art Show & Sale. This year’s juried show features 35 local artists, including painters, photographers, sculptors, woodworkers and fabric artists.

The show will also include work of prize-winners from the student art show held this past spring at Dufferin County Museum and Archives.

The Festival’s opening gala on September 25 offers a “first-in-line” preview of the show. It includes light fare, wine and beer, and entertainment by singers Lisa Watson and Russell Scott.

On October 2, BookLore presents what has become another Festival tradition. Armchairs, Authors and Art combines the art show’s visual feast with a literary evening featuring talks by four authors: John Bemrose, Catherine Gildiner, Robert Rotenberg and Margaret Wente.

The Festival Art Show & Sale runs for two weekends, September 25 to 27 and October 2 to 4 at the SGI Centre, 20490 Porterfield Rd. (County Rd. 136), north of Alton.
