AIH Studios is very pleased to present Sandy Fairbairn's exhibition
"Welland: Times Present Times Past" from February 15 - March 15, 2020, curated by Bart Gazzola.
The Opening Reception will be on Saturday, February 15th from 2 to 5 pm.
Sandy Fairbairn has been taking photographs of Niagara for over forty years, focusing on the people and places around him. His images of Niagara stretch back to the 1970s, and some of the scenes presented in "Welland: Time Present Time Past" will be shown in the Rose City for the very first time. Many of these images recall the industrial history of the Region, and others chronicle the ebb and flow of the downtown urban life of Welland.
Fairbairn combines an historical awareness with a playful eye; evocative scenes and vibrant colour often meet in his
visual histories. This exhibition is both artistic and historical, and
its installation at AIH Studios (179 East Main Street) in the downtown core of the city will offer visitors a very relevant space to consider these images of Welland, which span from nearly half a century to just last year.

Please join us for the Opening Reception, as the artist will be

AIH Studios gallery hours are Friday to Sunday, from Noon to 5 pm, and by appointment.
