HALTON HILLS, ON – The Town of Halton Hills’ Helson Gallery will open a new exhibition of work by local artists on July 11, 2018. Locally Grown features over 60 works produced by artists living or working in Halton Hills. Many of the pieces will be offered for sale.

An additional display pays tribute to the legacy of local gallery owner and arts advocate, John Sommer, who passed away in early April. Sommer and his wife, Gisela, operated Gallery House Sol from their Charles Street home for over 40 years and donated some 200 works of art from their private collection to the Town of Halton Hills. The exhibitions continue until September 9, 2018.

On view at the same time in the Sisnett Lobby of the Cultural Centre, the Halton Black History Awareness Society presents an exhibition of nine artists - Nicole Alexander, Joan Butterfield, Amber Caroll, Macauley T. Eteli, Georgia Fullerton, Ian Grant, Wayne Headley, Sheryl Keene and Lisa Meecham, who present the meaning of freedom in a diverse array of paintings, sculptures and photographs.

“It’s inspiring to see our community’s rich artistic heritage continue to grow through the efforts of talented artists as well as arts supporters like John Sommer,” said Judy Daley, Helson Gallery Curator.

The Helson Gallery is located at 9 Church St., Halton Hills and is open Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. and on Thursdays from 1 to 8:30 p.m. The Gallery and Cultural Centre are closed on Sundays during July and August.
