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.

Art of the Day

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I was checking out the Rebel 8 blog and saw some awesome art I want to share with the Hamilton folks. I like these pictures on their blog, it shows what artists in Hamilton should be striving for, too many shows of late have been pretty medicore at best. Hopefully this is a bit of inspiration.

Anyways today’s art is Dabsmyla via Rebel 8.
