Are you planning on coming to our Snowcastles of Newcastle event on Saturday?

Well we need your help!

In collaboration with John Albi from Rona, we have created a "snowcastle" of our very own, where we will be collecting food donations for the Clarington East Food Bank!

The day is sure to be great, with our many family fun activities being offered, including horse drawn carriage rides, a visit from Haute Goat, an animal wildlife display, bouncy castle, live music, caricatures, and lastly a maple syrup cotton candy offering!

So if you can, please bring some non-perishables and help us fill up our castle!

Saturday, March 4th from 9-5pm at the Clarington Public Library- Newcastle Branch.

Saturday Activities for the whole Family!

Featured Artist of the Month, Brent Sanderson

'Working with wood has been a constant in my life. Now in retirement, I have had the opportunity to explore what drives my passion for creating art with wood. From my shop in Gore’s Landing, armed with an angle grinder and chain saw attachment, I expose the beauty of wood. I create “one of a kind” pieces and have no boundaries. No living trees are harvested for my creations unless the tree is dead or needs to come down.'

Shop with us at The Gallery

Looking for something one of a kind, for that one of a kind person? We have many options available for you at A Gift of Art; Unique, handmade and locally created pieces for everyone on your list.
