The HBHAS Art Exhibit, “Celebrating Freedom” will be back for its final showing, Halton Hills Cultural Centre.
Date: July 31st to September 8th.
Launch Celebration: August 1st 7:00 PM.
I mentioned last year that participation in the arts and culture brings the community together. It helps improve social inclusion leading the way for positive experiences with diversity, tolerance and free expression. Together we feel safer, stronger. Our community united.
This summer be sure to make time and drop in to discover something new and exciting!!!
I’m creating healing art, not necessarily for the event, inspired by one of the artists participating in the exhibit.
“Healing begins where the wound was made.” -Alice Walker (The Way Forward Is with a Broken Heart)

For those of you who we know well and to the new artists participating this year, a heartfelt thanks on behalf of myself and the HBHAS. You remind us of what is possible.
Your work makes the art exhibition beautiful and a beloved community event for the Cultural Centre. We’ve had many visitors this year and so many wonderful compliments. You help us escape, if only for a moment, to different lands through your creative expression “Celebrating Freedom”.
Thank you for traveling to Halton Hills and sharing your positive vibe, talents and creative spirit. It was a magical evening.
Judy Daley, the curator of the Culture Centre, thank you for your input and assistance. We appreciate all the fine detail and effort that happened behind the scenes. We had fun.
To all the artists remember what Langston Huges said, “An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.” ~ Langston Huges

Had a great time meeting artist Ian Grant on the Danforth, Areej Art Gallery, this past weekend. His solo exhibit, “The Journey” is more than a collection of photographs. His inspirations come from traveling the world. Some images cheeky and others uniquely soulful where the images transcend those influences.
