Sandy Fairbairn’s exhibition of images of St. Catharines was the third exhibition of six I curated for the Mahtay Café in downtown St. Catharines. It was on display from mid December 2022 to the end of January 2023.
Julianna D’Intino’s Connecting Rods: A Survey of Industry in the Niagara Region, 2015 – 2022 was on display at Mahtay Café & Lounge in their main space in the Fall of 2022.
This was the first in a series of curated exhibitions of Niagara based artists, that I’ve put together to show in the downtown of St. Catharines, beginning in the Fall of 2022 and coming to a close in the Spring of 2023.
A summattion of some thoughts and ideas, and some of the conversations I had with artist, cultural workers and cultural instigators during my month long residency in the city of Welland in Winter 2019.
