Boynton House, Richmond Hill

Boynton House is an art exhibition space in Richmond Hill with four display rooms. The house is an historic site under the Ontario Heritage Act and dates back to about 1875.  It is an example of the classic Ontario farmhouse, with unique details of its era.

Our Opening Day event begins at 12 noon and is open to the public. After the formal ribbon cutting this part of the exhibition will be available to view here at your leisure and it may be possible to have photographs taken with visiting master artists.  Representatives from Winsor & Newton, QoR Watercolours, Daniel Smith, DeSerres Art Store, Da Vinci paints and RockWell Art Supplies will be in tent booths in the fenced garden area of Boynton House where they will demo products. Several will also have free samples for visiting artists.

Throughout the afternoon there will be opportunities for Plein Air painting with the masters at various locations around Richmond Green.  Our Official Opening and Awards Presentation will be at 3pm, either on the main porch/garden area or within Boynton House, depending on the weather.

Refreshments and cold beverages will be available throughout the afternoon. There will also be live music by a chamber ensemble from the Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra.

The opening day will continue with tea in the evening at the second venue – more on that later!  (Or, you can find more information here)
