Get news on Corner Gallery's latest exhibitions
Founded in 2020 at Haliburton Village's historic Lucas House, the Corner Gallery showcases works by Ontario artists, with a focus on abstraction and modern Canadian landscapes. The Corner Gallery provides a space for works demonstrating traditional methods and skills that help us see the world around us in innovative and provocative ways. Most of our exhibitions are paintings, with occasional shows featuring photography and other media where the subject matter and execution allow.
A Haliburton Landmark
Built in 1907 as a residence, Lucas House was the first house in the area to have gas lighting and modern plumbing. Over the years it's had several lives: as a rooming house, a real estate office, an antique store, and now home to the Corner Gallery, The Highlander Newspaper, a law office and artist studio.
Since purchasing the property in 2019, we have been repairing and upgrading the building for energy efficiency, safety and comfort, while slowly restoring its stately presence on Maple Avenue. Most of the exterior work will be completed by the end of 2022, with the final step being the re-wilding of the property with native plants to support the natural environment. In 2023 we will continue with interior upgrades to improve the building's functions as an event space, gallery and office.
We are grateful for the assistance of the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario in helping us to bring one of Haliburton County's most beautiful and historic buildings back to life.
The Corner Gallery's mission is to
Create interest in art by showing works that emotionally connect with or intellectually challenge the public.
Lead the growing recognition of Haliburton Village as a destination for fine art.
Provide a professional, supportive environment for Ontario artists to display and sell their works.
Be the centre of a community hub at Lucas House as it grows to include event space and demonstrations of innovative rural projects and businesses.
