AIH Studios in Niagara, Ontario is very pleased to present Sandy Fairbairn’s exhibition Welland: Times Present Times Past from February 15th to March 15th 2020.
Curated by Bart Gazzola, the opening reception for Welland: Times Present Times Past will be on Saturday, February 15th, from 2 to 5 PM.
Sandy Fairbairn has been taking photographs of Niagara for over forty years, focusing on the people and places around him. His images of Niagara stretch back to the 1970s, and some of the scenes presented in Welland: Time Present Time Past will be shown in the Rose City for the very first time.
Many of these images recall the industrial history of the region, and others chronicle the ebb and flow of the downtown urban life of Welland.
Fairbairn combines an historical awareness with a playful eye; evocative scenes and vibrant colour often meet in his visual histories.
This exhibition is both artistic and historical, and its installation at AIH Studios on 179 East Main Street in the downtown core of the City of Welland will offer visitors a very relevant space to consider these images of the city, which span from nearly half a century to just last year.
Please join us for the opening reception, as the artist will be present and we hope to have a lively conversation around the exhibition. Please share this as you like.
AIH Studios gallery hours are Friday to Sunday, from Noon to 5 PM, and by appointment.
