2020

Jan 18 – March 15, 2020
Tiny Squares: The Pixel as Material (Kemp, Stebbins, Zazai, Rosler)

In this group exhibition, artists explore how the pixel continues to influence visual art and our social lives, more generally. Through a variety of media including painting, photography, and sculpture, they question how the tiny squares found in our computers and cellular phones are mediating our experience of the world and of each other.


March 28 – May 24, 2020
Permanent Collection (with Brant Pottery Guild)

Glenhyrst’s annual permanent collection exhibition features selections from the gallery’s collection of over 600 artworks. In 2020, the gallery has collaborated with the Brant Potter’s Guild to make connections between the permanent collection and new works by the guild.


May 30 – July 26, 2020
Biennial Juried Exhibition

Occurring every two years, Glenhyrst’s juried exhibition is an open call for artworks from a breadth of media. Open to all residents of Canada, this exhibition often finds submissions from as far away as Saskatchewan and as close as down the street, which proves that Glenhyrst’s reach is local, regional, and national in scale.


August 1 – Sept 27, 2020
Doris Slater Titus

Doris Slater Titus is one of the most important and overlooked artists in Canada. She remains the only independent woman comic book artist in Canada during World War II and one of the first women artists to experiment with abstract painting in Canada. Moving to Brantford in the 1950s, Titus established the Brant Sketch Club at Glenhyrst Gardens and showed her work several times in the gallery itself. Tragically, Titus died in a head-on collision in 1964. This exhibition traces her life and contributions to the comic book industry and visual arts in Canada.


Oct 3 – Nov 29, 2020
Paul Kneale

In this exhibition, local artist Paul Kneale presents his recent projects, which combine colourful abstract painting with digital scanning technology. A major international artist, with public art works installed in Venice, Italy and elsewhere, Kneale and his family are a staple of Brantford’s cultural legacy.

Dec 4 – Jan 1, 2021
Vibrant Palette Student Exhibition

Occurring every year, the Vibrant Palette Student exhibition features hundreds of artworks submitted by local and regional elementary and high school teachers. Last year, the gallery hung 600+ artworks from excited students. Coinciding with the Brantford Lights event, this exhibition introduces children and youth to visual art from an early age and nurtures their love and appreciation for culture.
