    Hamilton has a very rich artists’ scene, and a great number of brilliant painters. On the occasion of the AGH centennial, this exhibition features ten artists from the Greater Hamilton area, many of whom are not well-known, showcasing the diverse subject matter, techniques and materials that are of the moment in contemporary painting practices. Direct from the artist’s studios and local private collections, the exhibition includes over thirty works in landscape, portraiture and abstraction. From lush oil paintings to a sculptural installation, the range of media, form and scale is intriguing.

    Runs during regular Gallery hours. See website for details.

    Reception: September 11, 6 – 8 pm      
    Talk by Reinhard Reitzenstein:
    GT stands for Graham Todd, Gin & Tonic, Getting Tougher / making art during one’s 4th decade: 
    October 17, 12:30 pm

    Artist Graham Todd passed away in June 2013. For nearly 30 years he taught as a Professor in McMaster University’s Studio Art programme, and continued his own active studio practice, exhibiting his sculptural work in Canada and internationally in Spain, Mexico, and the USA. Graham’s work can be found in private and public collections around the world.

    This memorial exhibition offers an overview from 1982 to the last untitled works in 2013, being shown for the first time.  The twenty sculptural works, all from Graham’s Estate, range in scale from his intimate Japanese series, to a 220 cm high tower assemblage. 

    The exhibition will also include examples of his sketchbooks and Chris Ward’s video interview with the artist, done in 2012.

    Location 1280 Main Street West, Hamilton, L8S 4L6

    The exibit illustrates how a bird that once numbered in the billions became extinct within a matter of decades, how this happened and how it can be avoided in the future. Look at the Museum's own rare Passenger Pigeon specimen, hang out in a human-sized bird nest, try your hand at bird watching or pigeon origami. There's something for the whole family -- even dressing up.
