VIEWS OF A CITY
featuring new work by Paul Elia and Gordon Leverton

Opens Saturday, December 4th. Show runs from Dec.4 -Dec.23rd.

Please join us from December 4 – 23, 2021 at the Paul Elia Gallery for the opening of Views Of A City, a holiday gathering celebrating the works of Gordon Leverton and Paul Elia. Both of whom are established Hamilton artists with instantly recognizable styles. Bringing their unique perspectives together for this exhibit invites the viewer inside the artist’s experience while exploring the built urban environment around us.

Including a Special Feature of Art by Young Emerging Artists
We have invited Young Emerging Artists (YEAs) from 3-15 years old to come create Urban-inspired works of art with us! YEAs will be creating their own interpretation of a Gordon Leverton painting or a Paul Elia digital illustration and it will be featured in the Paul Elia Gallery during the ‘Views of a City” Holiday Show, alongside new work by Paul Elia and Gordon Leverton. We both have created a rough sketch that the YEAs are using as inspiration.  It was  free to enter and a complimentary 12x12” canvas was provided, all mediums accepted. 
We are so excited to celebrate Young Emerging Artists and to offer this opportunity to have their work exhibited in a gallery for the first time! Please come out to support and view their work!

QUIT MESSING AROUND: The Creative Work of William Bill Hunter

Opening Friday, October 22nd from 7-10pm.

Born in Hamilton (October 27, 1930) to immigrant parents from Glasgow, Scotland, Bill Hunter was a tool-and-die maker by trade. He applied his factory skills, gained working on the shop floor of local industries, to his own creative work as a carver, furniture maker and woodworker. This exhibition features a selection of Bills carvings and objects (whales, ducks and jewellery boxes), along with the large sculptural projects he produced in collaboration with his son, artist/curator Andrew, for exhibitions across Canada (including portrait busts, whimsical creatures and furniture). Bill died (age 90) on March 30, 2021, and his last words to Andrew were Quit Messing Around.

While none of Bills works will be available for sale, there will be unique editions of commissioned prints and objects by Hamilton artists available. The proceeds from any sales will be donated to HCCI (Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion), Bills chosen charity.

HAMILTON ART GALLERY (HAG) PRESENTS PANSIES!

Opening Friday, September 17th from 7-10pm.

In the summer of 2020, in the course of our curatorial explorations for the 3rd Hamilton Biennale, we noticed that a number of male artists we were researching were pursuing the use of floral motifs in their work.

Floral motifs have been used in art by male artists from Fantin-Latour to William Morris and Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst.

While traditionally employed in still life and as decorative embellishments, they also often bear the weight of a more freighted symbolism. We invite you to explore this current, mostly local crop.
