photographY by Justin mulder
September 28 - October 7, 2018
Earlier this year, local photographer Justin Mulder was selected to be part of the 157th Salon National des Beaux Arts Exhibit, at the Louvre in Paris, France. He is one of a handful of artists in Canada, travelling to Paris in December to represent our country's film artists! Justin's family has put together a crowdfunding campaign to help fund the shipping, insurance, and fees associated with getting the works to France. We will be hosting an intimate event with Justin on September 28, where you can meet the artist, be the first to see the piece chosen to be displayed at the Louvre, and enjoy an evening of refreshments. This will also be the opening for the week long show of new works by Justin - we will have many pieces that have never been shown before! To buy your ticket to the opening event on September 28, and support a local artist's international exhibition, click here.
"Raised in Rural Ontario, Justin first fell in love with beautiful landscapes, big open skies, colour rich sunsets and billowing clouds well before he ever picked up his first camera. Taking photographs to capture this serenity was only natural. For decades Justin’s obsession with taking photographs was a well guarded secret that very few knew. Used to escape the daily grind and the chaos life would throw his way, photography was an outlet he used to strengthen his mental health and keep creativity in his life."

Vessels for flowers
may 4 - 24, 2018
Vessels For Flowers is a ceramic and floral exhibition featuring the work of 12 Canadian artists working in clay, making and designing vessels to display nature's beauty. This broad range of clay vessels shows the very best that this medium can offer. From highly decorated narratives, to quiet and subtle focus on form, the variety of work is incredible.
