Since the onset of Covid we have adapted and prioritized our focus to the needs of the community and our family. We've seen a great increase in the demand in our kids art classes, which we're thrilled to provide. Our kids classes are taught by our Gallery Assistant Morgan Hann. We offer in person art classes for kids ages 8+Up afterschool throughout the year. Kerry also has a series of online painting tutorials in Acrylic and Oil painting launching May 2023!
Our gallery space and online shop is focused on highlighting local artists. We currently represent the work of local Artists & Artisans, Ingrid vanReenen, Jane Dickson, CMBear and Kerry Walford.
We also offer art kits through our online shop, to help bring quality art supplies at a great price to Haldimand County.
To provide a welcoming and dynamic space (both in person and online) that encourages creativity, learning and enjoyment through the arts.
Kerry Walford and Adam Peet opened up Wildwood Art Gallery & Studio in their historic 1840’s built home in November of 2018. The couple discovered the home in 2015, and it was love at first sight. Shortly after having their daughter Clementine, Kerry decided to fully pursue her passion for painting and opened up the gallery. Walford specializes in large scale oil paintings inspired by the rural Ontario landscape, to find out more visit KerryWalford.com.
Pre-covid, our gallery was a hub for live events, including various art shows throughout the year, yoga, live music, and paint nights hosted at the gallery as well as at local businesses Twisted Lemon (Cayuga) & Concession Road Brewing Co. (Jarvis).
