Welcome to the Campbell House Art Project

In the planning stage of Campbell House, it was decided that our home should have its hallways decorated with art created by local artists that reflects the unique beauty and landscape of the Georgian Bay area. Currently, the fourth edition of our Art Project showcases 39 works by local artists, chosen by a jury of hospice volunteers.  Our latest Call to Artists went out in April 2018 and from the submissions received another edition of the Art Project will be chosen and hung.  As always, all art pieces are for sale directly from the artists. The response to our Art Project has been so positive that we are now committed to an annual update and we appreciate the support of the entire local arts community in keeping Campbell House looking so animated and colourful.
