Discover the Art at Clearwater

Discover Art at Clearwater Farm

At ClearWater Farm, we’ve served Keswick and the greater Georgina community since 2014. Georgina’s sought-after environment and community-oriented lifestyle enriches the daily lives of its residents. Georgina is known for its beautiful attractions, trails, and recreational facilities, making it an ideal destination for visitors.

On July 5 & 6 we are hosting the inaugural Paint ClearWater Plein Air Painting Event & Competition as part of this year’s Open House on July 6. Artists from Georgina and the GTA are invited to paint outdoors at the farm for two days with a painting competition to round out the event.

Friday is just for the artists. Check-in begins at 7 am, followed by a tour of the farm painting locations with local artist Michelle Richards-Clermont. After a morning’s painting artists will gather in the red barn for a social luncheon (info to come), this provides an opportunity to share your work from the morning and get to know your fellow artists’. ClearWater’s information videos will be playing to offer more information about the farm’s history, the educational, and environmental resources it provides our community.

Saturday’s painting opportunities will be enhanced by the Open House attendees as they come to experience plein air painters, along with the numerous activities including local vendors, an assortment of live music, Kids & Family Plein Air Painting Challenge, and more. 

The 2-hour plein air painting competition rounds out the artist’s events, with cash and prizes to be awarded at the end of the days’ events.

Registration is limited to 50 artists and closes July 3. This is a rain or shine event. No refunds. 

All artists are responsible for their own materials and supplies for the day. ClearWater Farm does not supply protection from the elements. Please be prepared for Ontario’s weather. 

Accommodations are available throughout Georgina, please check the Georgina Chamber of Commerce’s website for a complete listing of local restaurants’ shops and services. A special room rate for artists is available in Jackson’s Point for a one or two-night stay. The cut-off date to receive a discounted rate is June 15th.
