The Tate Gallery-Interior


For a wonderful experience of inspiring fine art and beautifully crafted, hand-made and unique gifts, visit The Tate Gallery.


Surrounded by tall shade trees and lush gardens this informal and intimate space is one of Northumberland County’s surprising gems. Moments from the 401 and the charming town of Port Hope, it is a beautiful venue that showcases the work of a variety of emerging and established contemporary artists and artisans.

Janita WiersmaLinda Van der BeekHeather Cameron

Janita is an artist from Cold Springs, Ontario, a location to which she has recently returned. After studying Fine Arts in New Brunswick and Quebec she now works as a print maker in Northumberland County. Her work is a visual distillation of an experience of the world and is concerned with landscape and place as processes through which a self is born.

Linda’s unique jewellery is elegant and unusual. Using semi-precious stones, interesting silver clasps and precise hand-knotting techniques, her sometimes asymmetrical pieces can be alternately delicate and powerful.

After taking a hiatus during her university years, Heather is excited to finally have more time to devote to her art. Continuing to gravitate towards the simplicity if black and white design, she notices, honours and elevates everyday experiences by giving expression to them in her art. Having grown up near Port Hope, she now resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
