Ward 4 will soon be the recipient of a really great new piece of public art. The “canvas” will be the garage door of the Mill Pond Gallery across from the Mill Pond Park, and the artist will be our local resident, Andrea End.
Richmond Hill Group of Artists has been awarded a matching grant from the Community and Culture Grant Program from the Town of Richmond Hill for this mural project. Six submissions were submitted from the membership. Submissions will remain on display at the Mill Pond Gallery during July and August.
The winning proposal, ‘Invitation’, by Andrea End will be painted onto the garage door of the Mill Pond Gallery, 314 Mill Street. Work will start the last week of July.
All are welcome to come by the gallery to visit our Artists in Residence at work, view the Mural submissions and follow Andrea’s progress once painting begins.
The Mill Pond Gallery Summer Gallery Hours:
Tuesday to Friday – 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm (10:00 pm on Thursday)

Each Friday during the summer different Richmond Hill Group of Artists members will begin their one week art residency at the Mill Pond Gallery. Visit daily and see the artist’s technique and how the work progresses. A closing reception will be held each Thursday evening coinciding with the Town of Richmond Hill Concert in the Park at the Mill Pond.
