Dundas, already internationally recognized for the Cacti produced by the local Ben Veldhuis Cactus Greenhouses, the group received Ben’s approval of the name, “Cactus Festival”. The first festival lasted 9 days, and began with a parade. It featured sports events, a film night, a casino night, a dance at the community center, and midway rides in Dundas driving park Over the years, it grew and in 1979, the downtown merchants agreed to hold their sidewalk sale as part of the Festival. Other craft vendors and exhibitors were invited too.

The festival moved to King St. and the reputation of the festival grew, year by year. For the sum of $1.00, the Jaycees sold the rights to the Town. Since 1979, the festival has been tirelessly organized by local volunteers; The Cactus Festival of Dundas Committee.

    This exhibition presents selected works of critical acclaim from the 1980s by eleven foundational contemporary Indigenous artists. As provocateurs, these artists declared that the lack of Indigenous representation in major arts institutions across Canada was symptomatic of a broader historical and on-going indifference to Indigenous peoples. These artists—and many others of their generation—(en)acted survivance by directly renouncing colonial dominance, tragedy, and the victimization of Indigenous peoples by asserting Indigenous presence through their art. As visual storytellers, their work stands as both evidence of and a means of cultural survival + resistance = survivance.

    Reception: Thursday, January 12, 6 – 8 pm
    Curator's Tour: Tuesday, January 31 at 12:30 pm
    Curator's Talk: Thursday, February 2 at 7 pm

    Drawn from the Permanent Collection of Canadian Ceramics, this exhibition traces the history of ceramics in Ontario over the last forty years. Starting with the refined functional ware of Ruth Gowdy McKinley and her effect on the program at Sheridan College and elsewhere, this exhibition will look at the development of the more sculptural approach by younger artists such as Reid Flock and Mary Philpott.

    Time had stood still since 1942 in a small Jewish village in Slovakia, until nearly 10 years ago when Canadian photographer Yuri Dojc returned to visit his family’s former home. On the eve of World War II, many of the villagers had fled, and those remaining were taken away to concentration camps. Serendipity led Dojc, along with a documentary film team to the local Jewish school, which had been locked since 1943. All the school books were still there, including essay notebooks with corrections, even the sugar was still in the cupboard. The decaying books, which were lying on dusty shelves, the last witnesses of a once thriving culture, are treated by Dojc like the survivors they are, each one captured as a portrait, preserved in their final beauty, silent witnesses to the horrors of history.The images in Last Folio are a last memento of the culture and people who used those books. Most of them are forgotten, they don’t have relatives or graves. I tried to memorialize them. This is not a documentary but my personal salute to a vanished culture and a vanished people.

    Unbuilt Hamilton is an exhibition and book that presents the Ambitious City at its most ambitious, exploring unrealized building, planning, and transportation proposals from the early 19th century to the early 21st. Drawing on archival illustrations, plans, and photographs from Mark Osbaldeston’s forthcoming book, the projects showcased include a magnetically propelled, elevated transit system, a vast mountain war memorial, and a plan from 1917 that would have transformed Ferguson Avenue into the Champs-Élysées. Alternate designs for Jackson Square, Christ’s Church Cathedral, and the Thomas McQuesten High Level Bridge cast new light on familiar landmarks. Unbuilt Hamilton presents the Hamilton that might have been.A Hamilton native, Mark Osbaldeston’s first book, Unbuilt Toronto, was the basis for an exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum and was a finalist for the Toronto Book Awards and the Speaker’s Book Award. It also received a Heritage Toronto Award of Merit, as did its sequel, Unbuilt Toronto 2.
