Welcome to Pelham Art Festival Online! Enjoy unique, original fine art ~ your connection to 57 artists and artwork in a vibrant array of style, medium and message.
Thank you to all who joined us on Mother’s Day weekend 2022 for the 35th Pelham Art Festival In-Person at the Meridian Community Centre.
Pelham Art Festival Online allows you to re-visit the artist galleries of many artists who were in the May 2022 show at the Meridian Community Centre and galleries of some artists who show only online! Browse collections of exceptional artworks curated by art educators, gallery owners and art curators to view award-winning works from the comfort of your home and purchase art by contacting the artist directly.
The purpose of the Pelham Art Festival is to give you opportunity to appreciate and purchase a wide variety of beautiful pieces of fine art. Another vital role of the Pelham Art Festival is to donate money back to the community. We are thankful to the artists who donate 15% of their proceeds and to the many community sponsors, donors, and volunteers who donate the goods, services, and time to make the Festival one of the longest-running highly respected art shows in the province.
The newly amalgamated Lincoln and Pelham Library continues to allow for local community library support. Over the past 35 years over $472,500 has been donated to the Pelham Library System benefitting both the Maple Acre and Fonthill Branches of the library. Annual scholarships are provided to graduating Pelham students from E.L. Crossley Secondary School and Notre Dame College School who are pursuing post-secondary studies in fine art. In addition, thousands of dollars have been returned to the community for art-related cultural programs.
