Artfest 2002

Your Arts Council at work and play

The PineRidge Arts Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhance the quality of life within the community by developing widespread appreciation, support and involvement in the arts.

PineRidge Arts Council members get involved with the community and have fun. The Arts Council, recipient of the 2000 Pickering Civic Award for Arts and Culture, participates in Artfest, Frenchman's Bay Festival and Winterfest with the City of Pickering.

Artists of many disciplines, artistic groups and art supporters make-up our diverse base of members.

Our Annual General Meeting is also an Arts Event. It is open to the public and is held in April 2.

PineRidge Arts Council and its contribution to Pickering.

The Arts Council publishes a newsletter, ArtScene, six times a year and members receive it in the mail, non-members can pick up a copy in libraries and other local public places.

Some of the members projects from the past are: HomePlace, Dorsey James’ amazing wood carvings at Alex Robertson Community Park; Dreamscape, Edward Falkenberg award winning sculpture at Pickering Town Centre; Trashy Trash, 10 Pickering secondary school students won the opportunity to paint their original design on city trash cans; and The Millennium Mast, Ron Baird’s sculpture, sits proudly on the waterfront.

Part of our Art in Public Places Programme, in partnership with Ontario Power Generation and the McLean Centre, Ajax brings original work to the public. The Arts Council also co-hosts an annual Juried Art Show, open to members and Durham residents, with the Town of Ajax.
