Hamilton Artists Inc-The Wardens-Heather Goodchild
The Wardens is a nondenominational organization started in the late nineteenth century by Anna Ward Brouse. Her early history is vague but it is believed that she was born in Berlin, Ontario (now Kitchener) in 1855. Anna travelled to Pennsylvania as a youth and at the age of twenty-three she was struck by visions depicting a society of outcasts in sixteenth century Germany. Moved by the beauty, strength and wisdom of these long dead people, Anna revealed their practices and beliefs to a growing society of her own.

The Printstudio-Association of 7-Dawit L Petros
photographs of temporary installations that investigate permutational possibilities and the disjuncture between physical and abstract materiality. The works appropriate the framework of an east African alphabet script (Tigrinya, Petros’ first language) and cardboard boxes. Petros integrates performative strategies, sculpture, and installation with legacies of studio and landscape imagery. The arrangements were constructed in locations ranging from Santa Barbara, California; Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to Nazareth, Ethiopia.
Lee Lyttle-Landscapes and Selected Works
Lee Lyttle’s Landscapes and Selected Works is an exhibition of digital prints originating from images of paintings on canvas and reworked digitally to bring out and highlight some of their subtle elements. The images vary, from landscapes of the Red Hill Creek eco system in East Hamilton, to surreal images conveying notions of death, spiritual transformation and accepting mortality.
n this series, Carol Priamo uses her extensive practice in photography, collage and design combined with the raw materials of her own photographic images and digital programs to create tapestry-like compositions of intensified colour, pattern and texture. Her process is one of building a new ‘reality’ from the purposeful integration of altered, layered and blended photographs of architectural facades and streetscapes.
