We’re the Gallery with a Difference. 

Here is your opportunity to visit one of Ontario’s award winning artist’s studio and gallery.   Located in the heritage village of Marchmont, central Ontario, Dave Beckett’s art gallery and studio is ideally located for visitors and art collectors. Much of Dave’s landscapes and still life subjects are derived from the area.  You will see exquisite sunset, Georgian Bay, Algonquin Park and East Coast paintings.

Tour his large Studio and see works in progress.  Surrounded by antiques and memorabilia collected from his travels, Dave’s Studio is where his works of art are created and is the location for his workshops and paintings.   Weekend workshops are offered for groups and private sessions in the art of pastels.  These workshops give students with all levels of ability “step-by-step” instruction in the art of pastel.  Students will learn techniques Dave has learned over the past 30 years.
