B CONTEMPORARY-Picture Plane-Grid,Dot Matrix, Pixel
Michael Allgoewer, Don Jean-Louis, John MacGregor, Andre McPhail, Liss Platt
The grid entered art during the Renaissance as a way to depict a more realistic sense of space in a painting. In the Modern age of Abstraction and Non-representational Art the grid turned flat to the picture plane. The Pop movement turned to the world of commercial printing for ways to depict both an image and the flatness of the picture plane. The grid morphed into dot matrix. With the emergence of the digital age artists began to use the pixel as the new grid.

WAHC-Steel Town Views
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.
