A new local book co-published by Rina Barone, Anke and Rick Lex was launched at The Simcoe Street Theatre in Collingwood on December 2nd. ‘Tremont Studios: Art and History’ pays tribute to the heritage building and the talented artists who create within its walls. The 128-page book is a beautiful, colourful journey that chronicles the history of the Tremont House as a former railway hotel built in 1889 to its present-day restoration as an artistic hub home to twelve local artists. The book is available at Curiosity House Books in Creemore and Simcoe Street Books in Collingwood. Photos/Story: Bryan Davies Photography
