This Friday (Dec 14th) is Art Crawl on James Street North in Hamilton.
It is always a great evening to visit all the galleries and shops in Hamilton’s arts community. The SWARM show at Hamilton Artist Inc continues until January 12th. The Dec 1st opening was great and this year there are almost 60 artists on display. Of there is my amazing painting entitled, “Urban Code” in the show, but if it does not match your tastes, then there is lots of other works to look at.
I highly recommend visiting David Brace’s gallery, B Contemporary at 226 James Street North. If you like abstract art, David’s gallery is the place for you. David is not big on social media, so the only way to find out what is showing is by visiting.
Another really interesting gallery is You Me Gallery at 330 James Street North, which is at the far end of the street. Bryce Kanbara is one of the founding artists of Hamilton Artist Inc back in the mid-1970s. Again, if you want to find out who is showing you gotta visit the gallery. It is hard to predict what kind of art you will see at You Me, but the artists on display are always the ones with ability and insight.
Of course, James North is now full of great restaurants and after visiting several of the galleries, dinner and drinks will really warm you up.
