Artisan Shop

The Harris gallery features a more permanent showcase of artists on its walls, and is home to our lovely hand-made Artisan Market Shop, featuring unique and inspired handmade, artist-designed or eco-friendly finds at reasonable prices.

The Harris Gallery is located in the former Grade 1 classroom of the original stone schoolhouse.  It boasts the original schoolhouse lighting, large windows and wood floors of the original structure (there is even a remnant of a hopscotch outline on the floor!)

Featured Artist: Rachel Albano (originals)

Meet Rachel Albano, an abstract painter from Elora, Ontario. Rachel's paintings are an intuitive process; multiple layers are covered and revealed until they culminate in a cohesive piece that testifies to this process.

The use of palette knives creates a sense of rawness and authenticity- rough, textural marks combined with watery, ephemeral drips that invite an element of chance into the work. Albano’s aim is to create paintings that facilitate a sense of inspiration to her viewers. Her work is...
