Hamilton, Ontario is known for many things. Thoughts of the city may remind us of Steel Town and Hamilton’s industrial (& industrious) past. The Niagara Escarpment that divides the city into north and south also brings forth over 100 waterfalls in the city, many of which are open to the public to visit and to admire. A thriving, eclectic neighbourhood that’s great for a stroll is Locke Street. Walk along Locke to discover a delightful selection of stores from antique shops, vintage clothing, children’s toys and delectable eateries like the Sweetness Bakery.
One of Hamilton’s unique and glorious treasures though is the Art Gallery. Founded in 1914, the AGH is the third largest public art gallery in Canada. Located downtown at 123 King Street West, the AGH is home to many exhibits and currently is showing Nature and Spirit: Emily Carr’s Coastal Landscapes.
New to the AGH is the Design Annex at 118 James Street. The Design Annex is a unique space that will host exhibitions, performances and events and will also be home to the Art and Design Store where you can find goodlines decor.
The GRAND OPENING of the Design Annex is happening this weekend, July 7th and 8th! Drop by between 10 am and 5 pm for a look at this great new art venue!
