The opulent architecture of Cornwall’s historic Cline House provides the ideal backdrop for rotating exhibitions of visual art featuring the work of both local and visiting artists. Admission is free.
The gallery also offers rental space to host meetings, intimate cultural events and private gatherings.
The Cline House is currently operating as a pilot project to promote and support visual arts in the community. This new initiative is funded through the generosity and support of an anonymous donation and in partnership with the City of Cornwall.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday 10am – 4pm or by appointment.
‘Vantage Points’ features the work of six accomplished artists with varying methods and imaginative processes for perceiving, interpreting and translating the reality of nature into the language of art. Through their unique expression of line, colour, form and pattern, each artist invites us to escape into the natural world, calling us to explore the idea of what landscape represents and how we observe the magic in the space around us.
Visiting the Gallery is free. Parking is available.
Candice Nixon is the creator of MELTING POT STUDIO. She is a graphic designer and glass artist based in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada.
Candice creates unique glass artwork combined with repurposed items like antique windows, bottles and century-old barn board. She is inspired when an object with a utilitarian purpose finds new life as a work of art.
The Cline House Studio offers a variety of programs allowing artists of all ages and levels to explore and create.

History of the Cline House
The Cline House, “one of the finest homes in all of Cornwall” was built in 1854 after the marriage of Samuel Cline to Margaret Dickenson. It remained in the Cline family until 1955 when it was purchased by the Cornwall Library Board.
