Jim Eller: Great Depression & Workers Series

Community  Gallery Jan 18th – March 1st, 2014

The Workers Arts & Heritage Centre is pleased to welcome a new addition to our city’s artistic community, Jim Eller.  Hailing from California, Eller was at the forefront of the burgeoning conceptual art movement in the United States during the 1960s, exhibiting having work in the permanent collections of prestigious venues as the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian Institution

This latest body of work focusing on images of workers created from or inspired by depression era photographs of working people, marks a departure from his conceptual practice and a reevaluation of the “human process of making art by using ‘the basics’; including application of materials, composition, subject, lines, edges, colour values and temperature”.

51 Stuart Street, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada L8L 1B5       905.522.3003       Public Hours: Wed to SAT > 10am—4pm
