A hidden-away gem. Their themed weekends are the best times to visit. The price and quality of the art are very good.

Local Artists Show Their Works

An opportunity to see and buy local art from the local artists. Paint, ceramics, woodworking are all on display at this restored mill, in beautiful Alton. You can meet and talk with many of the artists while they work.

Glad you enjoyed your visit! We are proud of what we have accomplished with this out-of-the-way building, which in turn has attracted an incredibly talented array of artists, gallery operators and vendors. Dealing with them directly gives visitors great value and helps create meaningful employment in rural Ontario.Thanks for spreading the word.

Another Amazing attraction in Ontario
Jul. 2019 • Family
Close to the Bruce trail, the Alton Mill Arts Centre is located in the village of Alton. This centre used to be a woolen mill and one can view the old machinery in the lower levels of the building. This centre is used to provide gallery space for artists on two floors. There is also a large area on the second floor overlooking the mill pond. The Mill shop has a great deal of quality clothing and products.

Glad you enjoyed exploring the Mill Nigel, and thanks for mentioning that we do much more than just sell fine art. The shop you mentioned is Rare Threads, a fibre design and fashion market featuring domestically-made and fairly traded fashions and fibre art. Gallery Gemma offers unique jewellery, both made on premises and selected from international designers, and the other galleries feature a variety of artisanal products for gifts and personal use as well as unique furnishings and fine art.

Beautiful and Quaint
May 2019 • Solo
I went to the Alton Mills Arts Centre for the "Spring Thaw" event which featured local artists and performances. The building and grounds are beautiful and right on the river. Inside the building is filled with various art studios and boutiques. Beautiful way to spend an afternoon.
