Latcham Art Centre hosts 5-6 curated exhibitions each year that reflect a range of artistic media and the cultural diversity of our province.
Exhibitions are complemented with educational and public programs including school visits, public lectures, art workshops, classes and tours led by the curator, art educators and exhibiting artists.
Additionally, the Art Centre annually hosts a juried exhibition, an exhibition of work by a local graduating high school art class, and an exhibition of work by art students from local elementary schools. The Art Centre supports artistic practices in the community by participating as a location in the annual Stouffville Studio Tour held in October, when local artists open their studios for the public to view their work
Latcham Art Centre (formerly The Latcham Gallery) was started in 1979 by a group of local artists and visionaries who saw the need for an arts facility in Whitchurch-Stouffville. The gallery was named after local philanthropist Arthur Latcham who donated money to a number of local buildings including the building that was to house The Latcham Gallery at 6240 Main Street. It’s first director was internationally recognized sculptor Ron Baird.
In August 2018, Latcham Art Centre moved from its home of nearly 39 years to a newly built space in the Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre at 2 Park Drive. With a refreshed name and branding, Latcham Art Centre, continues to create opportunities for people to see art, talk about art and create art with the same passion, dedication and vision to grow.
