Art lovers can catch new exhibits and talks at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) in downtown Brampton this month.

Exhibiting artists Russna Kaur and Peter Powning are giving artists talks this month.

Brampton-raised, Vancouver-based artist Kaur will discuss her body of work Maze of control and the slightest chaos in conversation with guest curator Renée van der Avoird.

The in-person talk is on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the gallery. The talk is free but donations are welcomed.

There are also two drop-in events inspired by Kaur’s work:

  • Go with the Flow adult and family activity: Saturday, Sept. 17, 12 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Family Fun weekend activity: Saturday, Sept. 24, 1 – 4:30 p.m.

Powning will discuss how living on the same farm for 52 years has inspired his practice as a sculptor and ceramicist, and share ideas about self-sufficiency as witnessed through the evolution of his work in the exhibition Peter Powning: A Retrospective.

Powning’s talk is a virtual event on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Powning’s work, featuring pottery and other unique sculptural forms, is on display in the Art Gallery until Oct. 30.

Free admission to PAMA exhibitions and programs continues until Nov. 19 as PAMA gets ready to re-open some spaces in the Museum and Archives.
