Exhibitions

Our main Gallery features exhibitions of works by local, regional and nationally significant Canadian artists. Our mandate is to show artwork that is important to our community; themes include careers of significant artists, current events and the history of our region. Exhibitions are changed every six to eight weeks. Artwork on display typically includes a variety of media, including traditional techniques, contemporary innovations and new media. Some exhibitions or themes occur at regularly repeated intervals, such as our annual exhibitions of High school student art and our Biannual Juried Exhibition.

Studio Visit

November 17-January 20

Opening Celebration:  Sunday, November 25, 2-4 p.m.

Artists: Leszek and Lynn Wyczolkowski

Studio Visit presents geometrically inspired intaglio prints and paintings by artist Leszek Wyczolkowski and revealing photographic close-ups by his wife Lynn that chronicle him at work.

Contrary to the single dimension of most exhibitions where we see only the finished product, Studio Visit uniquely places viewers in the active working environment of a painter and etcher. Steps, stages, techniques, materials used, and works in progress are highlighted in a series of non-manipulated photographs that help to demystify many unknowns, particularly those of intaglio printmaking.  

Join us at the opening celebration to hear the talk and tour given by the artists.

Lynn and Leszek are pleased to have the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Toronto taking the role of Honourable Patronage for the Studio Visit exhibition. 

Special Events

Special events held at the Gallery allow visitors to experience art in many ways and often provide the opportunity to interact directly with artists and creators. Community art-making projects encourage direct participation. Lectures, discussion groups and workshops are both educational and enjoyable. Some special events, such as our annual fundraising auction, are also opportunities to help support the gallery.
