It’s autumn in the hills, and that means Headwaters Arts is back with its Fall Event. The three-week art show and sale at Alton Mill in Caledon is the largest annual exhibition produced by the organization, which is dedicated to developing and promoting arts in the region. The works in this slideshow offer just a taste of what to expect from the 54 exceptional artists from across Headwaters and beyond.

The opening night reception takes place the evening of September 20. It offers the opportunity not only to preview the show but to meet the artists, while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, live music and a cash bar amid the historic stone, timber and glass of the award-winning mill. Tickets to the opening are $25. Admission for the remainder of the show is free.

On September 28, along with the art show, Headwaters Arts hosts the Big Blues Party II – a full-on dance party featuring Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival impresario Larry Kurtz and his band The Lawbreakers, as well as a nacho bar by Lavender Blue. Tickets are $35.
