We love beautiful artwork and strolling through our gallery your heart will be as captivated as ours with the stunning collection of Canadian pieces we display. You can find everything from paintings, jewelry, finely carved wood pieces, as well as a gift line this year, that includes Canadian, hand-crafted one-of-a-kind pieces from various local artisans. We love art and why not Canadian art that is designed to enhance and individualize your living space. If you’re new to cottaging in Muskoka our gallery is the place to visit. Stroll through and peruse the beautiful paintings of the breathtaking Canadian landscape and be harkened back to the 1920s and 30s as you soak in the pieces that explore Canadian nature at its purest. Immerse yourself in the work of Mark Berens as he captures the raw landscape. Or explore the work of Victor Nemo as he merges cityscapes in his own unique way, peaking patron curiosity and appreciation for the beauty of the world around us. We love art, we love nature, and we love Muskoka! Our family has a rich history of summers spent in the area, and with a bursting creative mind, owners Mona and Craig Harrison needed to express their love for fine art and unique pieces by opening the gallery doors in May of 2014. With backgrounds in business and interior design and a strong entrepreneurial spirit the Muskoka Fine Art Gallery has flourished and continues to become what our patrons love most – a place to reconnect with the surrounding boreal forest, wildlife and local lakes, to discover one-of-a-kind wood carvings that truly capture Canada’s creativity and beauty – a place to visit when the rain is falling and you feel a pull to connect with the history of the area.
