The other day I found myself in Hamilton Ontario, so I decided to drop by The Art Gallery of Hamilton. The gallery has a couple of engaging shows on at the moment: Are you Experienced? and Art for a Century: 100 for the 100th. Here’s a smattering of what’s on display.

Dorian FitzGerald The Throne Room 2009

It’s amazing what you can do with a Photoshop filter, acrylic paint and a caulking gun.

I can’t get enough of Paterson Ewen’s playful use of line, shape and colour.

Edward Burtynsky Ferrous Bushing No 18 (detail) 1997

One of Burtynsky’s manufactured landscapes was paired with this wonderful Thomson below. The two played very well together.

James Tissot Croquet 1878

Near the end of my tour (to my surprise) I came across this Tissot. Nice building with a sweet curatorial flare, I’ll definitely be back.
