Celebrate Southampton!

Like you, we see every day moving us forward with more optimism for the future and increasing opportunity to reconnect. We see a community changed but also a town that has shown heart, strength and adaptiveness. We have seen creativity and resilience and a refreshed appreciation for what we do have, embracing the constancy that gratitude brings.

There won’t be Canada Day Fireworks, but there will be the same sky blazing with Lake Huron sunsets. There won’t be Chantry Island cruises, but there will still be that same iconic view from the shoreline. The Range Light is changed, battered by high wind and water but still stands tall, a distinctive symbol of the way home. The masks, gloves and hand sanitizer we see now speak to a continued challenge, but the welcoming, open doors and friendly faces of our downtown business community say; this is your home, your special place. This is still YOUR Southampton.

Southampton Arts is delighted to announce an exhibition honouring the sights, sounds, lifestyle, people and sense of place, pride and belonging that is Southampton. It’s time to celebrate your creativity and our community. Celebrate Southampton.
