Located in Haliburton's landmark rail station, we present contemporary Canadian art, craft and music by regional Artists.
Our Summer Pop Ups launched July 6 with special Guest Lisa M. Jones on the baby grand piano, Art Squared Haliburton County and The PrideMobile. Art Squared is a benefit sale of 12 x 12 paintings in support of Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre. Over the summer we will be holding pop-ups at selected locations and placing works in the Rails End ONLINE Shop.
You can get involved by volunteering, donating a painting or purchasing work(s).
(shown here detail: Maurice Snelgrove, CSPWC.OSA. "Rocky Harbour Poppies", 12"x12", watercolour on canvas)
Every Tuesday during the Incredible Haliburton County Farmers Market you will find us showing and making art and music outside the Gallery. And inside, the Gallery Shop is open for in person shopping and browsing ceramics, glass, weaving, jewelry and visual art.
READ profiles of Haliburton Art and Craft Artists on our BLOG page... The Festival may be cancelled, but you can find work by many of the Artists in the Gallery Shop this summer.
