Millcroft Inn Artworks

In partnership with the Millcroft Inn, Headwaters Arts members can apply and be selected to hang their art here in the Headwaters Restaurant for a two month period.

The artwork is for sale and when you purchase art here, you are not only supporting a local artist, part of the proceeds goes to supporting Headwaters Arts, a local not-for-profit organization supporting local emerging and established artists in the Headwaters region.

Many thanks to the Millcroft Inn for graciously providing the opportunity for artist members of Headwaters Arts to display their art in the Headwaters Restaurant.

Mina Zare

Mina Zare

Mono-based Impressionist Artist, Mina Zare, has honed her painting skills extensively over the past several years. She works from her Summer studio on the second floor of their barn and Winter glass home studio surrounded by wilderness.

Mina has evolved her oil painting experience by using pallet knives and thick layers of oil paint on canvases. Mina is recognized for her abstract landscape paintings, whereby a contrasting subject to an existing texture is determined by the composition. According to Mina, painting is a journey into the unknown, full of challenges, surprises, and ultimate satisfaction. Besides painting within nature, Mina often paints in the studio and begins without a clear idea; however, more intentional brush strokes emerge along the way with pallet knife movement and oil texture.

Having moved to the Niagara Escarpment in 2020, Mina is inspired by wildlife, farms, forests, rocks, and running rivers surrounding her.
Mina  graduated from an Architecture Department with a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning and Design. Since 2005, she has worked in both Planning and Public Works Departments at various Greater Toronto Area Municipalities.

Mina’s artworks have been exhibited in several galleries and Museum juried art shows, including Alton Mill Arts Centre. In 2022, she received her second award from the Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archive (PAMA). Most recently, Mina was part of the Jury Panel at the Multicultural Art Show at the Museum of Dufferin in 2023

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather, and on which the Region of Peel operates, is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land. In particular we acknowledge the territory of the Ani-shinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give our respect to its first inhabitants.
