Helen's Gallery in Muskoka

The gallery is located on Helen's property between Bracebridge & Port Carling, just north of Milford Bay. Look for the big silver barn by Falkenburg Road and Beatrice Townline.

Yes, we're OPEN!  If the sandwich board is out at the bottom of the driveway, please come in! Note: sometimes it gets knocked down in the wind - if it's leaning against the hydro pole off the driveway, I'm closed. 

Some info regarding COVID-19 changes:

  1. We are limiting the number of people in the gallery to 6 -- but also a maximum of 2 family units (those travelling together) at any time.

  2. We ask that you please use the hand sanitizer provided upon entry.

  3. Masks are currently mandatory in Muskoka, so please bring and wear yours -- Helen will be wearing one, too.

  4. We've increased cleaning of high touch areas.

  5. We ask that you please visit us another time if: you have travelled outside of the province or country in the last 14 days; have had close personal contact with anyone with COVID-19, or who is in isolation or quarantine, or who is currently waiting for test results; if you are sick with COVID-19 or any contagious illness; or if you, yourself should be in self-isolation or quarantine according to the current provincial and federal guidelines.

Helen is a working photographer. The gallery will be closed when photo shoots, private lessons, and workshops are scheduled. These are sometimes scheduled last-minute. Likewise, the gallery may be open outside of these times. For date-specific details, please review the Google calendar below. Helen is also more than happy to schedule viewings and accommodate drop-ins when available. Feel free to contact Helen by email, text (preferred method) or phone to confirm.

Thank you for understanding!

 

Things to note for your visit:

  1. This is a rural farm property -- the driveway is gravel and uneven in some areas. Use at your own risk.

  2. This is a hay farm -- strictly no smoking allowed.

  3. We do not have livestock, and are pet friendly -- as long as your pet is friendly and good with other dogs.

  4. We have a porta-potty should you need to use the restroom facilities. This is available seasonally.

  5. We ask that you respect our privacy and the privacy of others that use the property. Please do not wander to or around other areas and buildings without our express consent.

  6. We have general hours of operation, which are subject to change. We are also open to welcoming you in at other times when we're available to assist you. Please feel free to text (preferred) or call Helen at 705-801-6161 to request/book a special opening or last minute drop-in visit.

  7. WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY: The gallery is not designated wheelchair accessible; however, if you are able to move on gravel after exiting your vehicle, we can set up a ramp to get you in the door, which is one step up. The gallery itself is large and should be easy to navigate.
