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.

HAMILTON ARTISTS INC-Mexico ii-Beaverly Healey & Christopher Healey
Two generations of Canadian artists, mother and son, present two different visions of the same place. As tourists from outside of the culture, this is not really Mexico but rather alternate versions of Mexico framed within particular contemporary and modernist biases. Hence Mexico ii.

Join us on the second Friday in June (just before the Art Crawl downtown gets into full swing). The Creative Exchange Networking Event will be held in concert with the Hamilton 24 (H24.ca). The HAMILTON24 was founded in the Spring of 2008 as Hamilton’s own 24-Hour Film Festival. The idea was simple: to hold a fun, community-enhancing event in which filmmakers would produce short films within a 24-hour period and then screen them publicly. This festival is now into it’s 5th year and is still going strong!

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.

Three contemporary artists who explore cultural translation within the context of Western society.  Soheila K. Esfahani, Fatima Garzan, and Farhang Jalali investigate the processes involved in cultural transfer and transformation.  three bring the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Iran and place it in a Canadian context; but each does so in his/her own way.  As artists, Esfahani, Garzan and Jalali have each looked for, and found, a way to meld their past and present lives, while creating works that speak to us with voices that are universal.

William Kurelek At the AGH

One of the first times I ever went to the AGH I saw the work of William Kurelek, a strange piece folk art like but with a bit more edge. Kurelek is one of those artists that stick in your head because he had something to say and for me that makes for some great art.

Take a look at this stunning image of his visions, even just to go see this piece is probably worth the trip alone.

Also as a side note, in May the AGO will be having a exhibit on Picasso

The Print Studio, 173 James St. N. 905.524.5084 • www.theprintstudio.ca INSOON HA – monology curated by Sally Frater. Monology continues Insoon Ha’s exploration of gender, hybridity, violence and trauma. In the main gallery the artist has covered the floor with multiple large-scale photographs of her face. Though visible through the Gallery’s storefront, anyone wishing to have a closer look (or to actually enter into the space) must walk upon the images and defile them. Ha will also display a series of serigraphs that feature images of human and animal forms and random objects that have been repurposed as instruments of torture. Performance at 9:00 pm.
