Current exhibit: Connections with the Brant Visual Artist Guild

Brant Visual Artists Guild 25th Anniversary Exhibit

In conjunction with the Glenhyrst Permanent Collection

March 23 – May 19, 2019

Opening Reception: Sunday April 7, 2019, 2 – 4pm

Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant is pleased to announce an exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Brant Visual Artists Guild, in conjunction with Glenhyrst’s annual exhibition of works from the gallery’s permanent collection. Glenhyrst is delighted to support an organization that helps to shape and define visual art in Brantford, Brant Region, and beyond.  Since its formation, the Guild has been dedicated to sharing ideas, strengthening our art community, and gathering resources for classes, workshops, and exhibitions; in addition, the Guild is active in helping local charities and fundraising events within our community. In this exhibition, Glenhyrst’s Curator, Matthew Ryan Smith, and Chair of the Permanent Collection, David Leng, pair works from the gallery’s permanent collection of more than 600 artworks alongside selected artworks created by members of the Brant Visual Artists Guild. The result is a conversation between the past and present, between subject matter, and between mediums as a way to forge compelling and unexpected connections.
