Manta Contemporary-Paul Dickens-Cubic Technology
Paul Dickens founded a method of drawing called Quantum Doodling in 2000 consisting of multiple series of intensely coloured patterns drawn by both mathematical and random calculations. Each drawing is a solid and complex structure of multi-coloured lines that will fool even the most attentive viewers to believe it was made by a computer.

Centre 3-Members Space-Victoria Alstein
She intends to bring the viewer back to a childhood state of imagination by collaging images from children books with whimsical drawings. She believes in the power of imagination for innovation, creative problem solving, and hope for the future. She hopes her art will help the public to escape from an apathetic state and return to a child’s perception of the world where imagining is easy and anything seems possible.

Eight studio participants created collagraphs, a printmaking method that works with textures and layers of surfaces glued together. The exhibition at WAHC’s Community Gallery (second floor) also includes the plates from which the prints were pulled. Gallery visitors are invited to use the plates to create rubbings and add their own visual comments on the topic of the “Feel of Steeltown,” for the visitor’s wall. A workshop with children from the ICAA art education program adds another newcomer perspective to the exhibition.
HISTORY AND HERITAGE-Luna Martinez-Virtual History
Oscar Luna Martinez is originally from Mexico City. He grew up in Montreal and now lives in Hamilton. He is a trained graphic artist with a keen interest in architectural illustration. Oscar is another example of the content for HIStory + HERitage’s exhibitions walking through the front door. Oscar showed me his illustrations of the Lister Block and that led to a discussion of a broader exhibition which includes Oscar’s fully rendered 3D illustrations of the Lister Block, the Pigott building, and an amazing re-creation of Hamilton’s old city hall that was located on James Street North that was demolished in 1962.
