The Kawartha Art Gallery has been making connections in the community since its inception, when it was known in the late 1960s as the Kawartha Arts & Crafts Association. The Lindsay Art Gallery was then incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1983. In the early 1990s, the Gallery moved to its current home on the second floor of the Lindsay Public Library. Four years ago, it changed its name to the Kawartha Art Gallery to reflect the talent and reach across the municipality. It remains Kawartha Lakes’ only public art gallery.Read More
