SWARM: Annual Members Exhibition

November 7  – December 5, 2015
Opening Reception: 7:30 - 10:00 pm

We are pleased to announce our annual members exhibition, SWARM, 2015. This is an exceptionally special year, as many of you are already aware, as Hamilton Artists Inc. celebrates its 40th anniversary. We would like to thank our members and community, as well as all of you who have helped us over the years, for making Hamilton Artists Inc. your artist-run centre. Members of Hamilton Artists Inc. have once again swarmed the gallery with their work, representing the diversity of artistic disciplines and practices in the Hamilton community.

This evening marks the Inc.'s final major event in 2015 to celebrate the milestone of our 40th anniversary and we plan to do it in style. Special guest DJ Tara Strange will be spinning vinyl throughout the evening, plus lots of fun 'birthday' plans are in store. Want to kick off your holiday shopping with the gift of Art? With over 100 participating artists, this is an excellent opportunity to find a unique gift, while supporting local artists (who receive 100% of the proceed of their sales)!
