Echoes: Recent Acquisitions in Context opening this Sunday!



Echoes: Recent Acquisitions in Context
December 12, 2015- January 31, 2016

Opening Reception:
Sunday, December 13
2pm-4pm







Franz Johnston, Untitled
Collection of the Grimsby Public Art Gallery


Arthur Lismer, Tangled Forest
Collection of the Grimsby Public Art Gallery



Public Art Galleries typically have three primary functions: exhibition, education and preservation of visual art. Exhibition and education are the public face of the gallery. Preservation, including the various activities involved in building and maintaining a collection, is usually a behind the scenes activity. Grimsby Public Art Gallery, like many other contemporary art galleries and museums, is seeking to de-mystify the backroom. The gallery’s collection is held in trust for the people of the town of Grimsby. It belongs to the public and as such the public has every right to enjoy it – and to understand it. Echoes: Recent Acquisitions in Context seeks to increase knowledge about the collection by showing viewers how some of our recently acquired art works enhance existing areas of strength.

Most of the pieces featured in this exhibition have entered the collection during the past ten years. They include works by several members of the Group of Seven; pieces that help extend our understanding of the more traditional historic Canadian paintings in the collection. We have also added some significant works by regional artists that demonstrate the concerns and interests of both the individual artists, and concerns of our  society. Environmental issues, international events, even changing depictions of local landscape all help us to better understand our particular place in the world.

About Alisa Cunnington


BA Honours Visual Art Brock University, 1996
MA Popular Culture Brock University, 2011


Alisa Cunnington is a mixed media artist working with found objects, assemblage, fabric/quilting, drawing, installation, and book arts.  She has worked as an artist, curator and educator and is an active participant and member of the Niagara arts community.  After a hiatus from art production to pursue other academic interests she has renewed her practice in an effort to further investigate relationships, intersections and interstices between memory, history, cartography, archaeology and story/myth.   Fascinated by the untold story obscured by the process of representation and the separate subjectivities of viewer and collector/creator, her work is most often a collection that focuses on connections between objects, spaces and places, stories and surfaces. After working in the arts community she made a shift to academics and has been working full time at Brock University as an Academic Adviser and as a part time instructor for a variety of departments in Humanities for a number of years.  She enjoys the connections she has made in the music, literary, theatre, and film arts worlds and now appreciates understanding the larger contexts of cultural production.

Toni Hamel's The Lingering opening October 24!

Opening October 24, The Lingering brings together incredibly relevant issues using sculpture and drawing.




Toni Hamel,
The Lingering

October 24-October 6, 2015

Opening Reception:

Sunday, October 25
2pm-4pm



Toni Hamel views art-making as an empowering, cathartic tool to tackle the dark issues and questions surrounding universal themes such as gender roles, self-image, identity, and self-acceptance. The lingering is inspired by the banality and confinement of domestic life. This work, imbued with symbolism, irony and satire, is an illustrated commentary not only on Hamel’s own life, but of the shared experiences of women.

Hamel’s subjects are explored through drawing, mixed media, sculpture and installation. Each component used in her work, including vintage objects and materials traditionally associated with women’s crafts, is specifically selected to add further layers of meaning to the composition. Although seemingly critical of domestic life, Hamel’s artwork is making peace with the conflict between her creative impulse and her domestic obligations – proving that her roles as wife, mother and artists can co-exist.

Toni Hamel was born & raised in Italy. She holds a BFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Lecce, a post graduate certificate in Computer Graphics from Sheridan College and a Golden Key Award from the University of Toronto where she attended the specialist Program in Psychology. Her work has been exhibited across Ontario; she has received numerous awards including two OAC grants.
