Shop Local Hamilton

shop local for christmas

This Christmas its important to know where your dollars go, I would encourage people to spend their money  locally. It not only improves the local economy but keeps local jobs flowing. I would especially encourage people to BUY ART for christmas! Art is not only a great gift but a great way to support the local arts and artcrawl in general.

These past couple years have seen some incredible growth for Hamilton’s economy with condo’s etc. its also seen a increase in poverty and people being pushed out by higher rents,etc Please if you can share some money with various local charities.

Thanks.

IO Lab is an audio visualization pilot project encouraging media artists of all levels to test and share their experimental interactive works. Audio Visualization is simply the visual representation (output) of an audio signal (input), the only IO Lab limitation is that all works must be designed to respond in real time either physically or in code. This physical computing environment explores the blurry space where analog meets digital and in the interaction expresses something unexpected. Media artists are encouraged to participate with their code live, their works interacting with each other, the space, and the audience.

We are excited to see what she will be producing in her new home.

HAMILTON ARTISTS INC-Black Mirror-Marigold Santos
BLACK MIRROR, combines new and recent work by Montreal based interdisciplinary artist, Marigold Santos. Using the black mirror as a metaphor, an 18th century tool used by landscape painters to abstract and simplify their subject matter through its reflection, Santos plays with the concept of fragmentation and reflection as it applies to self-hood. Through re-telling and re-configuring the folklore, landscapes and narratives of her past, Santos reflects on her identity, the concept of home and the hybridities between as one navigates the diaspora. When contemplating the past, we are no longer remembering, we are constructing something new, simultaneously affecting our view of the past and present. BLACK MIRROR employs this reflection and reconfiguration in the creation of personal mythos. Through both invented and re-imagined narratives, Santos invites the viewer into a space that is fantastical and foreboding, mystical and otherworldly.

THE FACTORY-tba

CENTRE3–Improbable Anatomy-Helena Rakic
Helena Rakic’s work reflects upon her perpetual affinity for precision. Helena tries to create images that are the honest reflection of her surroundings. Her work often contains the human figure, common objects or vegetation. It is always the subject that is placed in the foreground as she rarely ever integrates a background. It is this very emptiness that is void of distraction that allows for the figure to be the priority. The depleted background automatically creates a sense of isolation and forms an enigmatic presence. Helena see’s her lithographs as simplified metaphors that portray relatable human emotions, which are shown in a surrealist light.
Hunter Gather-Georgina Russell
Georgina Russell is a textile artist and screen-printer currently living in Hamilton, Ontario. She received her BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hunter Gather is a recent foray into decorative textile work. Having worked with garments for several years under the name Hand & Shadow, the materials and process used are similar, however, these prints are not intended to be worn. Instead they are a diary of sorts, a collection and documentation of the natural world. Hunter Gather is an exploration of harvested botanicals, each item collected within the woods near the artist’s studio. A nod to Victorian botanical cyanotypes, decorative floral textiles, and scientific illustration, Hunter Gather is an observation of nature and a tiny selection of what it holds.

FLAGSHIP GALLERYAxis-James Tughan
This month’s exhibition traces a loose parallel storyline, involving both photography and poetry. The photography in this show, was taken on a visit two years ago, in Paris, France and Basel, Switzerland. The poetry is a response to those images written in hindsight.

In her new series “In the End We All Return to Earth,” Shannon Amidon delves further into encaustic painting, layering and collage, as she explores the process of healing; the persistent duality of life and death, and the mix of emotions elicited from experiencing the birth and death of loved ones in a brief span of time.

HAMILTON ARTISTS INC-Fail-Royston Maybery, Klause Pinter, Lydia Sntia, Timothy de Vries
Failure is often seen as the state of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, the opposite of success. In a studio practice however, failure can often be more valuable than success, as the artwork that fails to meet ones objectives can be used as the counterpoint to a body of work, or possibly open new routes for exploration. Although initially deflating, failure can be a tool to leverage possibility from the mundane becoming fertile ground for innovation. Each of the artists in this exhibition, Royston Maybery, Klaus Pinter, Lydia Santia and Timothy de Vries, engage with this concept from varying perspectives, be it literal representations of failure to works they perceive to be outliers to their practice, or actual failed attempts.

Andrea Kita shares her photographs to convey a sense of place and inspire contemplation about the seven continents represented in her work. This collection of photographs provides a glimpse of the diversity both across and within the continents.  From dynamic urban environments to forgotten places, pristine natural landscapes to monuments of history and culture, there remain echoes of Pangea; reminders of the common roots of the land and our shared heritage of humanity. With every photograph, Andrea tries to capture the essence, or “somewhereness”, of each unique place and experience. Andrea works primarily with black and white photographs using both traditional hand printing and digital printing techniques.

Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame is a multimedia installation and participatory performance exhibition by Montreal based artist, Chun Hua Catherine Dong.

Employing East-Asian shame culture as a lens, Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame examines patriarchal values through a feminist dialogue employing the artist’s body. Dong’s cultivation of these issues expands discourse on how contemporary Chinese women are perceived and treated within Chinese and Western socio-political spheres. Through addressing and re-enacting the deeply personal, seminal life experiences in the works presented, Dong is able work through them, empowering herself and contributing to the growing empowerment of contemporary Chinese women.

Chelsea’s lithographs and screen prints have been exhibited in Sudbury, Kingston, and Toronto. She currently lives in Montreal./ Morgan Kamocki Allaby is an artist currently based in Southern Ontario. His work explores masculinity as constructed through interaction and personal traits.

These differences, such as size or strength, generate a subtle conflict and suggest the weight of gendered visual cues. Morgan’s work has been exhibited in Banff, Toronto and Hamilton.

SuperCrawl is Coming!

So hold on to your hats because supercrawl is coming! Now in case you didn’t know Supercrawl is a free, yup free, music festival going on the weekend of the 11-14th (sept2014). The idea was to highlight music and art but on a grander scale. The organizers took artcrawl and basically added music/big bands/sponsorship etc to the mix and this resulted in a explosion of people coming to downtown Hamilton and realizing its not scary and people can do stuff here. (Live start a business,etc)

The whole list of music bands are —–

Antibalas
Arkells
Ben Somer
Bry Webb
Canadian Winter
Charles Bradley
DJ Spinn
Dead Tired
Eight And A Half
Four Tet
Hamilton Children’s Choir
Hamilton Leithauser
Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra
Harlan Pepper
How To Dress Well
Ikonika

Some Highlights I feel are Jesse Lanza and Charley Bradley andalso if you can afford it A Tribe Called Red
Please check the start times as a lot of good bands are playing super early, not sure why?
CBC has a good listing of the visual portion  a highlight will be Dan Drever and the regular galleries will be open too!
And don’t forget the bars will have lots and i mean lots of good late night shows!
And here’s a treat from a hometown hero
