Art in the Fields

Art in the Fields is returning to South Pond for its second year, from June 29th to July 3rd, 2014. Last year, more than 1000 guests visited the property to see and buy the art and sculpture on exhibit. If you missed it, visit our photo gallery for a taste of last year’s event.

A popular venue for special occasions, South Pond also hosts cultural events such as concerts, celebrations, dinners, and, of course, Art in the Fields. The farm’s sweeping vistas of the Oak Ridges Moraine, its restored barn, blooming gardens, and tranquil pond provide a perfect backdrop for the art of all kinds, bringing together the physical, the spiritual and nature’s own artful beauty. Art in the Fields highlights artistic expression everywhere you look—in the gardens, along the trails to the pond, throughout the fields, around the lawns, and inside the barn.

The show begins on Sunday, June 29 kicking off with an Opening Reception from 1 p.m to 5 p.m., including music and refreshments from the stone oven. It ends on July 3rd with Art and Ale from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Throughout the show, guests will be able to wander and experience the property and purchase unique art pieces.
You can experience Art in the Fields daily from June 29th to July 3rd from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
