THE ANDREW CSAFORDI STUDIO GALLERY and LOVE NEST STUDIO GALLERY is a true County experience! Artists Andrew Csafordi and Tara Wilkinson share their art and passion for natural elements with visitors to their beautiful country farm. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Andrew paints exclusively with molten “encaustic” beeswax, incorporating other mediums. Luminous textures bring the viewer into an organic landscape unlike any other. His masterful paintings move naturally from two dimensions to three, from reality to colourful imagination, often echoing the fluidity of landscapes in The County. His works create a focal point and spark great conversation in one’s home or office. An exciting renaissance of this ancient “encaustic beeswax technique” has been growing with excitement. You’re invited to join in. Additional fine art, sculptural paintings can be seen in his magnificent century-old Barn Gallery in the heart of Prince Edward County. Also profoundly influenced and inspired by nature, Tara creates sculptural art nests from fibres, twigs and other found materials. Each nest features a delicious array of fibres, colours and textures, and is unique in character and spirit. She is also an award-winning photographer and offers framed and unframed prints, greeting cards and more from her whimsical gallery on-site - a restored chicken coop. Encaustic painting workshops and gift certificates available. The Studios and Galleries are located minutes NW of the village of Bloomfield; first road north of Huff Estates Inn & Winery in the heart of Prince Edward County wine country.

We visit Prince Edward County every year and recently discovered this studio. It is an incredible experience and a great place to find truly impressive and unique art. In addition to the art, Andrew is a gracious and inviting host. I recommend this experience to anyone visiting the County.
