Odds & Ends – 22 June 2015

There was an opening reception at Earls Court Gallery on Thursday (June 18th) for artists Katherine MacDonald and John Miecznikowsk.  I know both artists as instructors at the Dundas Valley School of Art.  While I consider myself as a self-taught artist, I did take about a dozen or so courses at DVSA in the late 1990s.

This was my first visit to the Ottawa Street location.  I would often visit the gallery when it was located in the core.  They still seems to be a very serious gallery with strong connections to Hamilton art collecting community.

I was also impressed by diversity of businesses on the street.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the future of the arts community is on Ottawa Street.

Odds and Ends – a weekly review of bits and pieces of activity and information that sums up an artist life.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
