James Street North, Hamilton Round 2

Hamilton Art Crawl

A few left over pictures from the Hamilton Art Crawl, James Buttrum & Son: Outside Context.
 Beautiful work from University of Western Ontario's graduate programs.

 The below images are from a great installation at You Me Gallery. The exhibition, by textile wiz Thea Haines, is called Good Housekeeping. Impressive and captivating, it's definitely worth checking out. Shelves line one wall full of neat, orderly Mason jars. Each jar contains a assortment of colour-coded textile works. Suggesting not only domestic life but also the perceptions and expectations of neat living, Haines' work is suggestive, beautiful and subtle.
