Hamilton’s Creative Arts Centre in the heart of lower Hamilton
270 Sherman Avenue North, Suite 201,
PLUS Art Fair
May 18th-21st from 10AM to 4PM
Plus Art Fair 2017 is the first art fair in Canada to showcase the work of current MFA candidates and recent MFA alumni. PLUS AF provides a platform for emerging artists, curators, and educators — who will lead the arts and culture scene in the years to come — to exhibit and sell their work. As an annual event featuring the mediums of visual art, PLUS AF will become the destination for emerging art in Canada.
Guests of the opening night will experience a special presentation by Evolved Entertainment as well as curated catering by Trashed & Wasted, a collective that encourages restaurants to create unique dishes from “rescued” food, featuring local Hamilton establishments: Nique Restaurant, Butcher and the Vegan, and Collective Arts Brewing. Akimbo is PLUS AF’s official media sponsor, and additional partnerships include the Hamilton Arts Council, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Cotton Factory and the Gladstone Hotel.
Featured artists: Aaron Maclean, Alexis Hildreth, Amanda Clyne, Angela Snieder, Bruce Thompson, David Salazar, Eryn Oneill, Frances Thomas, Jessica Lincoln, Jonathan Groeneweg, Laura Dawe, Matt Tarini, St Marie φ Walker, Tait Wilman, Tess Martens, Lina Roessler, Katie Bruce, Lesley Loksi Chan, Sam Noseworthy
