Craig Gallery is a family-run art gallery located in Meaford, Ontario. Set in a large space, with lots of natural light the gallery displays art in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, pottery and jewelry. They also host workshops, and events.
Craig Gallery is owned and operated by Jonathan Craig and Bridget Light, who live in the municipality of Meaford near Bognor and were inspired to open the gallery by their love of art and desire to be more involved with the community.
Jonathan comes from a family of artists, and it was the idea of having a “family gallery,” where everyone’s work could be displayed together that sparked the original genesis for Craig Gallery.
Jonathan’s father Philip Craig is a renowned Canadian painter, who is based out of Ottawa and whose work is shown in galleries across the country, and is collected around the world. Jonathan’s mother Diane Craig is a jewelry designer, who has been involved in many entrepreneurial endeavours including owning and running an animation studio.
Their children followed them into careers in the arts. Jordan Craig is a professional photographer and musician, Shannon Craig Morphew is an established painter who’s work is collected across Canada, and Jonathan Craig is a camera operator for television, and a special FX makeup artist in TV and film. Jonathan’s wife Bridget Light, is an artist and painter who also works professionally in digital media.
All of the family member’s work will be displayed alongside other established artists from across Ontario including many local artists.
