The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
On Friday, April 12 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, the Tom Thomson Art Gallery opens our doors to celebrate three new and exciting spring exhibitions: Barbara Sprague: The Dress, Lisa Birke: Volte-Face, and our latest Gallery Collection exhibition, Under Pressure: The Art of the Print, guest curated by David G. Taylor. The reception begins at 7pm with opening remarks starting at 7:15pm. Refreshments and appetizers to follow. This is a free event and all are welcome to join in the fun! The opening reception for the spring exhibitions is generously sponsored by Sisters on Huron, specialized women’s fashion boutique in Southampton, Ontario.
