Whetung’s is many things but we are also very proud of our art gallery and this means that we don’t just represent Native artists.

We share with you our history, our culture, and our heritage as we honour National Indigenous Peoples Day.

10am to 2:30 p.m. 
To celebrate our National Indigenous Peoples Day, we are throwing a party.

Come join the Powwow right here at the Gallery! Dancers and artisans, music, food and fun to be seen and enjoyed.

Festivities start at 10am behind the main gallery building, rain or shine.

Outdoor event, please come prepared for any kind of weather.  Everything wraps up around 2:30 so schools can get back for their regular dismissal times.

*If you are planning to bring a group please email with the name of your group and number attending.

August 18 & 19, 2018 – Summer Art Show
Summer and ‘art in the Kawarthas’ have become a synonym for those who have discovered the wealth of art galleries, exhibits and artists’ retreats that abound in this area. From the world-famous Buckhorn Art Festival to Sir Sandford Fleming College’s School of Fine Arts in Haliburton, this is the place to be in the summer if art is your thing. Especially if Native, nature, or wildlife art is your thing! Start your tour right here at Whetung Ojibwa Centre!
