In Prince Edward County, about 2-hours east of Toronto, there is a world of artists to explore, many that are locals. It's so much fun and you get to meet such interesting people. You can start by visiting the 'arts trail' website, but it's not until you get there that you can really get a sense for this wonderful community.
I loved visiting all the smaller artists in their homes, all clearly marked on the 'arts trail'. You can really find treasures for any taste! But my favourite place was the Oeno Gallery. It's as sophisticated as anything you would find in any major city around the world. They even offer art consultations in the GTA if you are interested, which is a great service if you don't feel like making the trip.
Check out the arts trail and Oeno Gallery websites for more details. And if you make the trip there, don't forget to have fun at the wineries and the organic Fifth Town artisan cheese co too! It's a most charming experience!!
