In the Rotunda Gallery:
MAIN STREETS & MEMORIES
For the month of September, see the history of "small town Ontario" through photographs capturing architecture, streetscapes and people. Working from photographs of original postcards, the exhibit compares early 19th century street scenes to present day. This collection is about connections and continuity; the past with the present, how things change, yet also how they stay the same, how life often repeats itself. Using an urban style of photography, the artist highlights the personality and resilience of these villages. Photographs portray a sense of a pioneer spirit, yet include modern and often humorous or quirky touches that connect the past with the immediate present.
