Where the Wild Things Are

Discover “Where the Wild Things Are” in Headwaters Arts fourth members’ art show of 2024 now in the Headwaters Arts Gallery in the Alton Mill Arts Centre, Alton. The walls/displays are filled with an eclectic and unique selection of arts works by twenty-six bold and ultra- creative artists. The colourful and exploratory exhibit depicts the untamed side of the artist’s imagination, be it fantasy or real world images. The 40+ selected pieces include works in a variety of mediums: oil, watercolour and acrylic paintings, wood, textile, mixed media and photography.

“As a nature lover, I often take walks in the woods or sit quietly watching the creatures that happen to cross my property. It is the wild places and their inhabitants that compel me to try and capture in my art their simple moments as they go about their individual lives. It is a privilege when they let me in.”says Artist Kirk Szmon from Palgrave.

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.
