Who we are …  Arts Carleton Place was officially launched as a non-profit organization in the fall of 2005 and continues to recognize, celebrate and promote the unique artistic activity in the vicinity. With an eye to ‘empowering artists and area residents through the arts’ this group promises to raise awareness of the arts, develop partnerships within the community and identify and develop the area’s artistic capacity to its full potential.

VOLUNTEERS are needed to fulfill our mission!
To help out, become a Volunteer.

Several Arts Carleton Place members also belong to the Manotick Art Association and are participating in their On-Line art show and sale. This runs from Nov 1st – Dec 15th
The following is MAA’s announcement:

The Manotick Art Association is excited to announce “Inspirations On-Line” Fall Show and Sale 2020! www.manotickart.ca/resources

Even though our physical Spring and Fall Shows were not possible this year, our artists just keep on creating!   We hope you enjoy browsing through this collection of original works by talented local artists.

Christmas is coming – we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift for that special person on your list.  There’s lots to choose from; but each item is one of a kind and once it’s gone, it’s gone.  Check out our show soon!

To see each artist’s “booth”, click on the artist’s name or image. Click on any image in the gallery to see it full screen.  At the bottom of the full screen image, click on “i” for title, size, price and other details.

Youth Artists Special Initiative

Arts Carleton Place assisted two community organizations with their art programs – Carleton Place and District CORE Youth Services and Lanark County Interval House.

CORE Youth Services and Centre provides young people with social, educational, recreational and developmental opportunities, enhancing the well-being of youth and our community.
Lanark County Interval House has an active Young People’s Art Program!  “The young people love to paint on canvases and there are not enough of them in stock”. This a good way to get young people talking.

ACP members’ and supporters’ donations of canvases, other art supplies and cash made it possible for ACP to contribute needed art supplies to these wonderful organizations. 

Thank you to our members and supporters for making it possible for Arts Carleton Place to support Youth Artists at ‘Core’ and ‘Interval House’.

The popular November Itty Bitty Arts & Crafts Show has also been cancelled for 2020.

The ‘SHOWCASE’ box highlights our members’ diverse talents.  Go to the Galleries section where members have their own page with bios, links and many photos of their art, photography, jewellery, book covers, theatre productions and music covers.  This is their website!
