The Corktown Gallery
Once a month, together with curator Lisa Wiebe, James brings together several local artists to display their work in a social and cultural setting in the Upstairs Gallery at The Corktown Pub. A selection of Wine and Beer is available.
In 1862-63, the Salon des Refuses (The Exhibit of Rejected Works) was created by Napoleon to display art that had been rejected by the jury of the official Paris Salon because of its provocative nature. This was one of the events that became instrumental in a movement towards more liberal expression in the art world of France and the rise of Impressionism.
The Hamilton art scene is going through an explosive renaissance and breaking away from the torrent of big business and mainstream thought to emblazon a new entrepreneurial spirit over a tired industrial landscape.
The Corktown Gallery in a small way, tries to embody that spirit by connecting the art with the audience it was meant for in an unconventional way.
