Visitors to Latcham Art Centre will be inspired by the vibrant work in Celebrations, an exhibition celebrating creativity, colour and youth from students at 16 local schools. View hundreds of fabulous pieces of art organized by school name in this joyful display. All are invited to join us for a “Welcome Celebration” Friday, April 29th from 3 – 6pm. The exhibition closes Saturday, May 14th at 5pm.
Beginning Friday May 20, visitors can take in Both Sides Now, an exhibition by Gary Evans and Frances Thomas. Guest-curated by Carol-Ann Ryan, the show includes recent abstract paintings by two established Barrie-based artists. The title of this exhibition is inspired by Joni Mitchell’s song of the same name, and it provides a lyrical entry point to help viewers find connections between the artists’ distinct ways of working. Though each artist lets their own intuition direct their work, and both are inspired by their unique observations of the world, their paintings ultimately find common ground somewhere between the real and the imaginative. When viewed together, their work offers viewers two sides of a similar journey. Join us for the opening reception on Friday May 27th, from 7 – 9 pm. Admission is free. The exhibition closes on Saturday July 2nd.
