Gallery Exhibition: Saturday, June 28 - Sunday, August 10, 2014

Art is about asking questions and generating ideas. It is about the process of experimentation and having the courage to set your own rules. Art is reactionary and responsive, provocative and personal. Art is empowering and encourages others to be advocates for change. Peel students at IONA Catholic Secondary and Parkholme School offer their perspective on a range of topics impacting their identification of self; their interests, environments, cultural expectations and influence of media. Perspective is the culmination of a series of classroom exercises in drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and mixed media collage. This exhibition highlights the artistic voice and style of a new generation of Artists.

Artworks in Public Spaces

Community Artists are now featured in two new exhibition spaces as part of a Centre-wide initiative to exhibit artwork beyond the gallery and throughout the Centre.

Lee Lidbury is a Canadian Landscape and Fine Art Photographer residing in Mississauga Ontario. “I approach the environments I photograph in a way that makes them feel more like a portrait. The work I create aims to evoke feelings of tranquility and stillness in its viewers”.
