The Gallery Upstairs has been a destination spot in Milton for over 40 years! Once located in the Harrop House, a century old stone house located in Milton, Ontario, that featured the Harrop Restaurant and Art Gallery; it has since moved to it’s current location at 3 Mill Street in Milton, Ontario. Over the years, many artists displayed their work at the Harrop House and grew their following and reputation through us. From the beginning, we hosted art exhibitions and events to meet the artists, and showcase their work.
The art scene was hot and frenzied with people having 15-20 pieces of art in their home collections; now people average more like 4-5 pieces of art in their home. House building trends have had an impact on this. New architecture of homes have more windows and less space for paintings, so people tend to focus more on their outdoor living spaces.
The art world has evolved, and so has The Gallery Upstairs. With the new art gallery location in 2013 came a beautiful outdoor garden space that houses our gorgeous Castart Studios Collection of all year outdoor garden and sculpture art, as well as hand made wood and metal art from the Afrika To You Collection.
Owner, Hedi Nowak, is proud to have built long standing relationships with the artists and clients welcoming them time and time again to The Gallery Upstairs. Robert Bateman, Tina Newlove and Patrick McGoey to name a few. On display are original works of art from local and international artists in an array of mediums for your collection. We welcome you into our showroom virtually or in person to help you find what speaks to you.
