Crosswalk Art Has Come to Main Street.
At the corner of Church and Main Street, under the eye of the Schomberg Market Day mural, Schomberg’s agricultural heritage was celebrated with 2 crosswalks featuring local crops that would have been sold on Market Day. The first crosswalk features the fall harvest of pumpkins and carrots, the second features spring crops of strawberries and salad.
These crops were carefully chosen to represent both the Holland Marsh and the highlands of Schomberg’s agricultural area.
Pictured overlooking the installation is Lisa Grealish, the winning artist who designed the crosswalks.
The Third Crosswalk Features Turtles
Located adjacent to the Dufferin Marsh and a prominent turtle crossing, the third crosswalk features bullrushes, lily pads and turtles.
It is the intent that in addition to adding visual art to the intersection, this crosswalks will serve as a reminder to drivers to keep an eye out for turtles, especially in the Spring.
You will find the garden crosswalks at the corner of Church Street and Main Street. The turtle crosswalk is located at the corner of Main Street and Dr. Kay Drive.
This Street Art is a 55 Foot Selfie Station!
The Schomberg Street Gallery Has Taken it to the Next Level
Schomberg Street Gallery
While this outdoor exhibition and sale of fine art has always been set against a backdrop of heritage buildings and century homes, now it will also be set against a backdrop of art itself! The mural will remain in place for at least 12 months.
Meet Andrea End
Andrea was a fixture on Main Street in May and June transforming the hoarding in front of the construction site at 214 Main into a beautiful piece of street art.
Andrea End is a visual artist whose inspiration is the sunlight - its colours and shapes that are created in the forests and on the lakes of the Canadian scenery. Her practice is informed by her photographic documentation of the countryside.
She has participated in numerous juried shows, group shows and solo shows, primarily in the Greater Toronto Area, and will be one of the artists at the Schomberg Street Gallery Sunday September 15. She was amongst the first group of artists to display their work at the Old Mill Art Gallery and Shoppe at 357 Main Street.
How It All Happened
This image was taken on April 8. The construction site is tidy, but one could hardly call it beautiful.
Watch the Transformation Unfold
Can you guess what the end product will look like?
On May 21, the image was projected onto the hoarding, allowing Andrea to trace the outline of her piece of art.
This visual art installation is an outcome of the generous support of Rona and Raycor Mechanical and the volunteer efforts of local artist and Street Gallery organizer Tom Wray.
