Scugog Arts is our community’s creative hub: awakening, inspiring and connecting you to all the arts. The arts space on Queen Street hosts Resident Artists, the Biidaaban Gallery, monthly exhibitions, workshops for artists and visitors, a meet up space, cultural events, literary programs, festivals, and tours.

Get inspired with monthly exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, photography, installations, and more. Also, shop for unique original hand-made pottery, fibre, original prints, mixed-media, jewellery, and authentic indigenous art from Biidaaban Gallery anytime on their online store – shopscugogarts.ca

Scugog Arts has been active in connecting our community with public art displays, such as Art You Can Sit On, creating a memorial to Bill Lishman, and ceiling tiles for our hospital. The arts council is funded by individual donors, such as the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, Vos’ Independent Grocery, Old Flame Brewery, Canadian Tire Port Perry, Ontario Culture Days, Central Counties Tourism, and the Canada Summer Jobs program of the Government of Canada.
