Helen's Gallery in Muskoka

Nestled in the heart of Muskoka on an 80-acre rural property, you'll find a 1,200 square foot art gallery full of inspiration and beauty. The gallery has been described by guests as surprisingly sophisticated, a hidden gem -- a barn with formal gardens outside, but open the doors to reveal a large, bright space more in keeping with what you might find in a city. The images that grace the walls are landscapes and wildlife captured in the area by professional photographer and full-time Muskoka resident, Helen E. Grose. Helen offers ready-to-hang canvasses and framed prints of all sizes, small matted prints, blank greeting cards, calendars, t-shirts & buffs. The space also doubles as a classroom where Helen teaches private lessons and photography workshops. The gallery is open to the public between April and December, with set hours, plus an opportunity to schedule your visit at a time convenient for you. Open by appointment only January to March.
