2014 Juniper Island Art Festival

August 9, 2014 will be the first day of the 23rd Annual Juniper Island Art Festival located on beautiful Stony Lake in the Kawarthas. This exhibition and sale of original artwork and photography showcases works created in the last two years by artists who have an affiliation with either Stony or Clear Lakes.

There is no fee to enter the show, however donations are greatly appreciated as they support the Association of Stony Lake Cottagers (ASLC), which funds many projects on the lake including the preservation of the historic buildings.

This local art festival is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who plan, construct and arrange all the displays for the more than 50 exhibitors that make this the unique show that it is.

Opening night, Saturday, August 9, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. is one of the social highlights on the lakes Enjoy a fabulous array of potluck hors d’oeuvres, great conversation and, of course, the opportunity to view a wonderful and inspiring variety of visual artwork including landscapes, florals, contemporary, sculpture, mixed media and photography.

Visitors will enjoy the show and sale of mixed media art in the Pavilion and photography in the Yacht Club. The Young Artists exhibit will be in the Library, located in the main historic building.

The Festival continues on Sunday, August 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. All artwork will remain on site until the end of the show.

Due to its location, access is by boat only. Due to the popularity of this event, “boat pooling” is highly recommended, as space is limited. Harbor Town at McCracken’s Landing offers a water taxi service for a fee of $10 each way. Arrangements must be made ahead of time. Please contact Karl at 705-652-6101.
