Curated by Su-Ying Lee The exhibition title 'TBD', most typically used as an acronym for ‘to be determined', proposes that the definition of a contemporary art gallery is not fixed. 'TBD' exposes the defining factors of contemporary art galleries for scrutiny and examines the institutions' effects on communities in order to imagine possible futures and new approaches.

Six Degrees of Freedom represents a group of artists (Gail Backus, Biljana Baker, Barry Coombs, Gary Duncan, Ethel Grossman, Linda Kemp, Mary Lou Hiller, Doug Mays, Tiina Price, Doreen Renner and Bill Schwarz) with diverse backgrounds from Northern and Southern Ontario. Love of the natural environment, a desire for broadened horizons, and joy in the limitless possibilities of creating with paint has brought them together to celebrate the freedom of interpretation. This juried exhibition of exciting and dramatic original works contains watercolours on paper, as well as acrylics or oils on stretched canvas.
Alison Milne Gallery is pleased to present It Looks The Same, a solo exhibition of new paintings by abstract artist Karen Kawarsky. This will be Kawarsky's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Known for her bold palettes and rich impasto texture, Karen's new work is an evolving process using oils and acrylics on found barn board as she continues to experiment with non-traditional tools. The uniqueness of the raw barn board propels each painting in a new direction, inspiring spontaneous choice of colour and texture.

Blake Ward's contemporary work builds on the techniques of classical figurative sculpture used since antiquity. His latest series Just Beneath the Surface crosses into abstract and ethereal realms where he creates stimulating figures that expand the consciousness of our inner realities. Their perfect proportions break away from all the fundamental rules of bronze sculpture, catapulting this medium into the 21st century. Ward's provocative, partial bronze figures with disappearing bodies are academic and classical, florid and baroque and freshly contemporary in form and spirit.
What began as a transatlantic love story (Montreal boy meets Stockholm girl) has, over the course of three albums, transformed into one of the coolest groups around. Recently named to the Polaris Music Prize Long List for their most recent album, Turning Rocks, Simon Angell (a founder of the Patrick Watson Band) and his now-wife Erika, form the heart of Thus Owls — a magical, mystical quintet that finds inspiration in sources as varied as Alice Coltrane, Japanese surf-rock and PJ Harvey. Special guest and Montrealer Michael Feuerstack — of Snailhouse, Wooden Stars and Bell Orchestre — is a welcome addition to the evening's proceedings. Supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage

Find a variety of vendors selling everything from farm fresh fruits and vegetables, honey to ready-made cabbage rolls and sausages. Our market runs every Thursday from May 29 to October 30. Come out and support your local farmers and enjoy what Ontario has to offer.
For the last eight years, farmers from across south central Ontario have helped create a very popular farmers' market. The combination of local, fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, honey, flowers, cheese, bread, smoked meat, mushrooms and pickled preserves, along with a variety of prepared food vendors, and music help create a wonderful ambience especially during lunch time. Our long-time vendors have developed wonderful relationships with their customers. As the Entertainment District has developed with office buildings and condos, the market has experienced real growth and benefits from a great mix of people who shop there. The Metro Hall market at David Pecaut Square has become one of the finest farmers' markets in Toronto.
