In the centre of Elgin County lies the centerpiece of its visual arts community - The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre (STEPAC). Established in 1969, it is committed to promoting visual arts throughout the region and beyond by preserving an extensive permanent collection, and hosting 16 exhibitions annually featuring local, regional and international artists. Also an education-focused organization, STEPAC facilitates educational programs and endorses emerging artists. Among its many events, the annual Fall Art Auction in November provides art lovers with an opportunity to purchase unique souvenirs while supporting STEPAC’s programs and the vibrant St. Thomas-Elgin arts community.
