Welcome to Critical Mass

Critical Mass is a not-for-profit arts organization based in Port Hope, Ontario. Led by a group of volunteer curators, artists, and art enthusiasts, everything we do is shaped and supported by the community we live in. We strive to bring to life arts-based experiences and events that expand our understanding of what contemporary art is and what it can be. 

Our mission is to deliver art to engage with. Consider this your official invitation.

These little birdies (Birds of Many Clines, 1900s textile design by Charles Annesley Voysey) tell us that big plans are in the works for #CriticalMassArt this year! We may be a bit quieter than usual as we’re in the throws of program planning.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: After finishing up the cleanup from the Candlelight Festival in the snow we've decided that the weather is far too miserable to hold Eli Gibson's artist talk today. Stay inside, stay cozy, but whatever you do don't come to the Little Station today because we won't be there! Keep an eye on social media for an update on the rescheduled time. ...
