TOUCHSTONE COMMUNITY ART PROGRAM
Creating an Art Focused Community
Touchstone recognizes the vital role art plays in enriching and engaging communities. As part of our ongoing Community Arts Program, we encourage locals and visitors alike to enjoy our year-round on-site exhibitions.
- We proudly showcase a beautifully curated collection of commissioned works from local artists inside the Discovery Centre as well as the future Touchstone Inn
- Our public art installations will be integrated throughout the Touchstone community plaza, Greenlane and various parks, connecting people to each other and this beautiful seaside village.
- At the heart of our commitment to creativity is our live/work studios – inspired spaces designed for emerging and established artists to thrive in their respective mediums.
