All things handmade are housed in a beautiful, 110 year old Registered Historic Alberta Resource home. The house was formerly owned by the founding Lineham family of Okotoks, Alberta. A large and medium sized formal gallery and entry way on the main floor exhibits group shows of select artists every quarter. The main floor also showcases Okotoks and Southern Alberta artisanal items including jewellery, pottery, glass, metal, wood, prints and artistic gifts for heart and home.
Our small gallery on the second level features the work of our associate artists, who often work on site. They are happy to share their work with you. We strive to bring the best our region has to offer in a friendly, historic home and gallery.
