Last week to see International Women’s Day exhibit at King venue

The King Heritage and Cultural Centre has joined with Arts Society King to present this first annual exhibition in recognition of International Women’s Day featuring the work of 25 Canadian women artists from the Township of King, the Toronto area and beyond.

We had a chance to catch up with Erika Baird, Town of King Heritage and Culture Supervisor, to talk about the exhibit and what else is going on at the centre. Watch the video below.

In honour of IWD, women artists of all abilities, experience and orientations were invited to participate and share a piece of their artwork within a climate of affirmation and co-operation. Artists were challenged to interpret the theme of community through both their art and artist statement.

Presented by the King Heritage & Cultural Centre and Arts Society King, this first annual exhibition in recognition of International Women’s Day features the work of 25 Canadian women artists from the Township of King, the Greater Toronto area and beyond.

In honour of IWD, women artists of all abilities, experience and orientations were invited to participate and share a piece of their artwork within a climate of affirmation and co-operation.

International Women’s Day (March 8) is “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.”

For 2022, artists were challenged to interpret the theme of community through both their art and artist statement.

Consider a community that is diverse, equitable and inclusive;
a community where difference is valued and celebrated;
a community free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination
What does community mean to you?

This art exhibition was the first project of a newly formed Exhibitions Committee at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre. The purpose of the committee is to ensure that the community is represented in the planning of exhibitions by gathering and generating ideas that reflect many interests. Volunteer representatives help to create a 3-year plan and keep a balance of bothheritage and art displays on site and throughout the community.

Exhibition open daily 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday through Saturday, March 5 through April 16, 2022. Admission by donation.
