18. Hamilton HIStory + HERitage 165 James St. N. 905.526.1405 • www.historyandheritage.ca
The Grand Durand – Hamilton’s Mansions to Dec. 14. South Durand is home to one of the best and most architecturally diverse collections of pre-war residential architecture in Canada. Constructed from the 1850’s to the 1930’s, a time when the revival styles of architecture where in fashion and Hamilton’s economy was booming, the owners and architects who built here had the freedom to express themselves through architecture. Owners could choose a style that best expressed their heritage or financial status and they had the means to build on an ambitious scale with quality materials and talented craftsmen. This resulted in homes that are excellent examples of an amazing array of architectural styles; Gothic Revival, Tudor Revival, Classical Revival and many that combine multiple architectural styles or experiment with new ones in a spirit of innovation and one up-man-ship that one still feels walking in the neighbourhood today.
19. Hamilton Artists Inc. 155 James St. N. 905.529.3355 • www.theinc.ca
Steven Laurie Jacked! Sept 6 – Oct 28, 2012. Steven Laurie’s exhibition Jacked! examines the unfolding aspects of normative masculinity through visual references to blue-collar trades, pastime activity, consumerism, and horseplay. The artist employs traditions of performance art, kinetic sculpture and mark-making to consider how actions/processes such as burning rubber, engine revving, and stereo thumping can be seen as communicating a sense of subcultural kinship and territoriality. In the performance Burnout, the act of burning rubber is reinvented as artistic gesture and imprint on James St North.

30. Focus Gallery, 66 James St. N. 905.218.9557 • www.thefocusgallery.ca
New exhibition: Kawong Chung-Shipman. Working on large format conte charcoal drawings from her home and studio in Hamilton, Ontario, Chung-Shipman focuses on ideas that perceive the human body at its most vital
and dynamic expressions of physical energy and emotional interchange. The formal art education she received from McMaster University and University of Toronto continues to influence her in the use of visual language. Observation of German Expressionists work and renderings in dry point and etchings are evident in Chung-Shipman’s own images. She places great emphasis on rich shadows and velvety tonal surfaces juxtapose with sensitivity of lines. The complex connection that balances the human anatomy with that of inner psychological content is carefully collected. Her landscapes likewise reflect moments of charged tension when all of nature’s elements are mobilized.
