Helson Gallery in Halton Hills to reopen with new exhibitions
Published July 28, 2021 at 5:17 pm
The Helson Gallery will reopen on August 4 with New Acquisitions, a showcase of fifty works of art that were donated to the Town of Halton Hills last year.
Additionally, the Halton Black History Awareness Society’s Annual Emancipation Art exhibition will feature twelve artists in a variety of media and explores the meaning of freedom. It is on view from now until September 4, 2021, in the Sisnett Lobby.
During the month of August, free drop-in arts and crafts activities for children will be offered at the gallery on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. The public is reminded that the current capacity limit in the gallery is 25 people. The exhibition continues until September 19.
“With the move to step 3, I am pleased to see the reopening of the Helson Gallery. Experiencing these new exhibitions in person (while adhering to all safety protocols) is a great way for the public to reconnect with art in our community,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.
The Cultural Centre is located at 9 Church St. and is open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. during July and August.
The Helson Gallery is staffed by volunteer docents and hours may be subject to their availability. Masks and social distancing are required when visiting.
