Exhibition Opening: RESURFACING, Omar Badrin

Our first Exhibition of our FAMILY themed programming is nearly here! Join us on May 18th from 7-9pm to celebrate and hear Omar talk a bit about his work!

This solo exhibition marks the debut of Toronto-based artist Omar Badrin at Union House Arts.Viewers of his work are often drawn to his eerie, whimsical fibre sculptures that frequently evoke feelings of otherness through the use of colour, scale and unconventional materials. Primarily using the medium of crochet in his practice, Badrin’s work often straddle the line between fine art and craft.

Community Potluck

Farewell Feast

The Farewell Feast is a new addition of programming that we are running concurrently with our Artist in Residence Program! Every month we will be hosting a potluck to say goodbye to our Visiting Artists and to wish them well!

Participants will have the opportunity to chat with Visiting Artists, ask them about what they’ve been up to, and learn a little about them and their practices, all over a shared meal! Folks who come are encouraged to bring a homemade dish to contribute to the feast (but it is not mandatory).

Everyone is welcome and spots are limited so we kindly ask that you register in advance to ensure we have room!
