Caledon Music Festival at Alton Mill
This August Caledon Music Festival returned for a gorgeous afternoon of classical music. Our outdoor tented Annex swelled with the sounds of viola, violin, flute, and cello for an unforgettable experience.
An article from the Caledon Citizen says: "During the intermission, the Citizen caught up with Caledon Music Festival organizer Terry Lim. Lim said he was very pleased with the turnout for the festival, explaining on the seventh he actually had to add more tickets than planned to meet the demand from people hoping to get a spot last minute. He said people were enjoying the music, and that he and the other performers wanted to bring a balance of strong, passionate music, and lighter sounds for a summer day... The acoustics at the Alton Mill concert location were great, said Lim, as the walls bounced sound off of them and created a church-like sound."

Three New Gallery Exhibitions
There are interesting exhibitions in all three of the galleries at the mill this month:
Noodle Gallery's featured show this August is "Freedom Flight" by artist Ricky Schaede. This collection is a tribute to their Mother's life and memory. Reflecting on a new style of painting Ricky says: "Where I was once tight and extremely detail-oriented, I have become looser, more painterly, and more expressive, pouring my emotions onto the canvas. Please join me in celebrating life, love, and the beauty of the natural world." Come take in the beautiful and dynamic works today until August 28th!
Alton Mill Artist's show "The Artist's Journey" is in the Falls Gallery.

Her recent collection of the latest functional and decorative works is her response to this important issue.
