Past and present make a colourful convergence at JMR Art Gallery, where the work of talented modern artists is displayed in a historic studio space that once housed a village blacksmith shop. Instead of admiring works of wrought iron or steel, today's visitors can admire jewellery forged from technicolor glass anchored onto adjustable rings and one-of-a-kind pendants. Custom framing services by Hunter Framing help protect and display treasured artwork or embarrassing pages from a sibling's diary, ensuring they can be passed down from generation to generation. Acrylic paintings inspired by the tranquil shores of Lake Huron hang alongside the intricate stained-glass artwork of Judy Roth, the gallery's resident artist, who undertakes her creative work in an on-site studio. Roth also invites guests to tour the studio, allowing them to witness the stages of her stained-glass creations and perform impromptu Shakespearean monologues from the shop's fully restored juliet balconies.
