Autumn brims with colour in the hills, not only across the landscape, but in the studios and galleries of our local artists. On these pages, we’re pleased once again to present our annual preview of the headquarters of it all: The Festival Art Show & Sale. The juried show represents the exceptional works of more than 40 local artists at the SGI Canada Centre, north of Alton. It’s open to the public for two weekends, September 23 to 24, and September 30 to October 2, with the opening night preview, and chefs’ challenge, on Thursday evening, September 22 ($50).

Along with the art show, the Headwaters Arts Festival offers a rich mix of other cultural events, including open studios, music, film, theatre, workshops and an excellent program of activities for kids. Visit the SGI Centre again on Friday, September 30 for the popular Armchairs, Authors & Art, this year featuring authors Linwood Barclay, Trevor Cole and Camilla Gibb ($25 at BookLore).

For the full program, visit headwatersartsfestival.com or call Headwaters Arts at 519-943-1149.
