“I know so many amazing artists just looking for a spot to show their work. It has always been my dream to organize an art gallery, and when we found this great space, and with the help and support from the golf course ownership and the Albatross Restaurant, I knew the time was right,” says Karen Brown of the gallery. “Our goal is to place our artists’ work in a wide range of public and private collections.”

The Granite Room Gallery is a secondary banquet room at Granite Ridge Golf Club in Milton, ON. The venue is equipped for public meetings and can be rented for social events and receptions. The stylishly minimalist gallery exhibits emerging, mid-career and established artists creating contemporary works on paper, paintings, fine art photography, fibre, encaustic and assemblage. The mission of the Granite Room Gallery is to bridge various artist communities and provide its artists greater exposure to new markets.
Public access to the Granite Room is available during business hours (7 days a weeks during golf season and at a reduced schedule off season) and only when the room is not booked for a function. To check that the room will be unoccupied at the time of your visit, please call 905 878-5494
