A new exhibition about the cities of Mississauga and Brampton is set to hit the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) soon.

The permanent rotating exhibition, called Yours to Discover: Sights/Sites of Peel Region, will hit PAMA on July 1, 2023, and will be curated by Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.

Yours to Discover: Sights/Sites of Peel Region is set to feature artworks from the Art Gallery collection including pieces by Caroline Smith Crawford, Thomas Stone, James Beaver, Stuart Clifford Shaw, George Paginton, Gary Spearin, Sara Angelucci and more.

“The Region of Peel stretches from the shores of Lake Ontario to its most northern point where it borders with Dufferin and Simcoe Counties. In years past, it was populated by Indigenous nations; today, it is the home of over 1.5 million people of diverse Indigenous and settler backgrounds,” reads PAMA’s website.

“As visitors or residents, many artists turned their paint brushes or camera lens to the area, making visual records of a place and time in the history of the Region. All reflect a sense of place that is uniquely Peel.”

Operated by the Region of Peel, PAMA is located at 9 Wellington St. East in Brampton.

PAMA is open Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
