Homer Watson House & Gallery, built in 1834, is the homestead of Homer Watson, Canada’s first noted landscape artist. It is one of the oldest operating galleries in Ontario. Watson’s house was also the home of the renowned Doon School of Fine Arts during the 1950’s to 60’s and drew such artists as Fred Varley and Carl Schaefer.
Today, Homer Watson House & Gallery offers a variety of public and private programming to the tri-cities with the objective to enrich and educate all members of our community. Currently, Homer Watson House & Gallery offers a series of programs catering to local schools and homeschool groups, seniors facilities and families. Public programs are also offered year-round and are available to students aged 2-102.
