Events - Art by the Lighthouse 2015

The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is pleased to announce the return of its annual, juried, original art show and sale.
August 1 & 2, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. FREE Admission.
Rain or shine the show goes on!
Plenty to see and do both outdoors, on the picturesque grounds of the Pumphouse on the river’s edge and inside the heritage brick building. Event includes the show and sale of a variety of original artwork, outdoor Family Friendly art activity and a silent auction benefiting the Niagara Pumphouse programs.

The Niagara Pumphouse is excited to present over thirty professional artists, from across Ontario, exhibiting a wide range of original, hand-crafted works. We are pleased to welcome back some returning artists as well as looking forward to showcasing some brand new artists. This year’s Art by the Lighthouse will feature paintings, photography, sculpture, jewellery and more! Click Here for a list of participating artists and samples of their work.

While visiting Art by the Lighthouse, we encourage you to participate in the Draw Your Neighbour project with artist-educator, Julia Blushak. This will be the world’s longest drawing by neighbours. It provides a great opportunity to share ideas and feelings about community and living. Participants of all ages are invited to join in the neighbourly fun. Click Here for details.

A silent auction with artworks, theatre tickets, golf passes, gift baskets and various gift certificates is also planned. Proceeds from the silent auction will directly benefit Niagara Pumphouse art programs and the Ian Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Our 10th annual show & sale was made possible by the generous support of our leading Gold Sponsors: Walker Industries and Niagara's Finest Inns. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Visitors will also be able to tour the heritage brick building. It is the oldest surviving pump house in Niagara Region. The abandoned water pumping station (circa 1891) was purchased by the Town of Niagara on the Lake and through community effort and fundraising the building was restored and converted to become the unique Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre. The original pump, which once supplied water to the Town of Niagara on the Lake, remains on display in a garden.

Thank you for your support
