This page presents our annual preview of the Headwaters Arts Festival Show & Sale. This year the juried show will take place for the first time ever in the beautifully restored heritage surroundings of the Alton Mill Arts Centre on the banks of the Credit. Featuring the work of 39 of the region’s finest artists, the show acts as a kind of headquarters for the many art tours, open studios, and other arts events that take place across the region throughout the fall.

Authors’ Night, another longstanding Festival favourite, has also moved to a new location this year, the Orangeville Town Hall Opera House. Moderated by Nicola Ross, a longtime contributor to this magazine, it features readings and conversation with authors Elizabeth Hay (His Whole Life), Bruce McDougall (Every Minute is a Suicide) and Paula McLain (Circling the Sun).

The Festival Art Show opens from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Sunday, September 20, and continues Wednesday to Sunday for the next two weeks. Admission is free. Authors’ Night takes place the evening of Friday, September 25. Tickets are $30, available at BookLore or online at headwatersarts.com.
