Organized by Dr. Benedict Leca, the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Director of Curatorial Affairs, this international loan exhibition opens at the AGH on November 1st 2014 after premiering at the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, in June (2014). Comprised of nearly twenty Cézanne masterpieces, in addition to a clutch of works by related artists, The World is An Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne charts a thematic and chronological sweep of Cézanne’s still life painting, showing how the ‘Master of Aix’ recast the genre and set it on a new course. Traversing the breadth of his still life production—from early paintings engaging with past masters to very late works unique to him, and treating the range of themes, including apples, flowers and skulls—this select gathering of paintings offers viewers a brief reappraisal of Cézanne’s monumental achievement in this genre.

The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Painting Hamilton
On view November 1, 2014 to February 8, 2015
Curated by Melissa Bennett, Curator of Contemporary Art

Hamilton has a very rich artists’ scene, and a great number of brilliant painters. On the occasion of the AGH centennial, this exhibition features ten artists from the Greater Hamilton area, many of whom are not well-known, showcasing the diverse subject matter, techniques and materials that are of the moment in contemporary painting practices. Fresh from the studios, the exhibition includes over thirty works in landscape, portraiture and abstraction. From lush oil paintings to a sculptural installation, the range of media, form and scale is intriguing. However the psychological weight of the subject matter prevails, as it is activated by the materials. Whether an intimate portrayal of a model, or an intuitive and gestural expression of the environment, the pieces are captivating, powerful, and impressive for their ability to engage the viewer on a subconscious level. Featured artists are Jennifer Carvalho, Catherine Gibbon, David Hucal, Daniel Hutchinson, Charles Meanwell, Matthew Schofield, Christina Sealey, Beth Stuart, Lorne Toews and Manny Trinh.
