This show features works from CFS members celebrating the 150th birthday of Canada.
The show will be held from May 23 through June 10 at the Holcim Gallery in Milton.
In developing this theme, the term “Canadian Landmarks’ is used in its widest possible sense. Whether the work is inspired by the majesty of the Canadian landscape, the diversity of its wildlife, the fragility of its ecosystems, its industry, its cultural diversity, the urban experience or through an artistic interpretation, each artist will explore his or her individual understanding of what it is to be Canadian.
