The Art Hive is an exciting multi disciplinary arts enterprise located in the historical Welch’s General Store.  Since it opened in June 2007,  it has been a hub of the Haliburton County’s Art Community.  Local artists and artisans display and sell quality-crafted pottery, fabric art, music, ironwork, sculpture, paintings, jewellery and more. In addition to the gallery and gift shop there are creative workshops for both children and adults and an organic fair trade coffee bar, plus special arts events throughout the year.
