Life Near the Lake at Elmhirst's Resort

Submitted by Jim Babbage

Ongoing until January 2023
Elmhirst’s Resort

Several years ago, my wife and I purchased a cottage on Rice Lake. We’ve come to love the Kawarthas over this time, using the cottage as our weekend “base of operations,” never sitting still too long, but rather, taking drives all around the region to experience what the Kawarthas has to offer culturally and visually. My exhibit at Elmhirst’s Resort, on the north shore of Rice Lake, showcases many of those visual experiences, reminding us that, even though the world is beautiful, there is also much beauty to be seen in our own backyard. – Jim Babbage
