About the Exhibitions:
Inner Dialogue is a new exhibition featuring works by Angela Marino, Vick Naresh, and Amanda McKinney Sparrow who each investigate identity through diverse styles of portraiture painting.
Table, Manors is our newest exhibition from Hamilton-born artist Kareem-Anthony Ferreira. The works in Table, Manors reimagines moments from Ferreira’s Trinidadian family members’ lives, focused around the dinner table. The images of preparing, serving, regarding, and eating food produce a rich exploration of not only Ferreira’s memories, but broader themes of colonialism in the Caribbean.
Our capacity for attendance will be capped at 35. Masks will be mandatory during the event and proof of full vaccination will be required for entry.

Vick Naresh is a contemporary artist currently working and living in Hamilton, Canada. His ongoing body of work is an exploration in figurative abstraction that delves into metaphorical narratives tackling social contemporary & personal themes like post-colonial displacement & identity in a modernist context. His practice is influenced by a recognizable, yet undefined language of qualifying imagery mixed with geometric configurations & representations of imaginary environments further expanded with the use of visceral colour harmonies. These works index moments of reflection in an immaterial universe, attempting to comprehend the ethereal while superimposing layered memories. Visit https://www.vicknaresh.art/.

For the past 20 years Amanda has taught art in a variety of capacities, with the majority of that time spent at the Art Gallery of Hamilton and the later at a Montessori School.
