A. J. Casson must have loved visiting Glen Williams as much as the artists working at the Williams Mill. His painting titled "Street in Glen Williams" just sold at auction for over half a million dollars (http://www.cbc.ca/arts/artdesign/story/2010/06/01/casson-auction.html
Set in the 1930's during the colourful season of Autumn this depiction of Glen Williams is a tribute to the beauty of this little village and an inspiration to all artists.
For the over 35 artists working in their studios at the Williams Mill, the river, the trees, and the historic buildings remind us how wonderful a village setting can be. 100 year old Honey Locusts dripping with fragrant petals peek through towering Maples while French Lilac shrubs intoxicate visitors while they stroll the Main street.
No wonder the work produced at the Williams Mill is some of the most inspired in Canada.
