Two new art exhibitions opening soon in Halton Hills will help to support humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

Beginning on Apr. 4, the exhibitions will open in the Sisnett Lobby of the Town’s Cultural Centre.

The first exhibit entitled Albert Gnosill: A Closer Look will be featured in the upper lobby.

Gnosill was a contemporary of the Group of Seven and specialized in landscape painting.

The exhibition is being lent by Ann and Josef Sirka, who are donating proceeds from sales of the paintings to the Pomich Ukraini Fund which provides aid to Ukrainian war orphans.

The lower level of the Cultural Centre will feature an exhibition entitled Hope/Nadiya which contains the work of several local artists and includes various styles and media.

Artists will be donating proceeds from sales to charities in support of Ukrainian relief.

“I applaud the efforts of our local artists and collectors to raise funds for humanitarian aid in the Ukraine and hope the public will take the time to visit and support these exhibitions,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

The Cultural Centre is located at 9 Church St. and is open Mondays from 1:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Tuesdays to Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Both exhibitions will run until May 1, 2022.
