    A Woman's Work is Never Done EXTENDEDExpand/Collapse

    to

    The definition of Women’s Work has evolved over time. Once, it defined any work historically undertaken by women, especially domestic tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and child rearing. As we enter a new decade of the 21st-century and gender roles continue to shift and grow, we understand that women’s work is a much more complex, all-encompassing term that defines all work that women do, both paid and unpaid.

    By weaving together a collection of Niagara Falls stories, this exhibition seeks to celebrate the diversity of women’s roles within the labour force. It highlights not only the success of women in traditional roles, like teaching and nursing, but also showcases the strong contributions carved out by female leaders in our community as artists, broadcasters, activists, historians, managers, and politicians.

    Extended until January 8, 2023

    to

    Drawing inspiration from different interactions and movements in our everyday lives, this exhibition highlights Niagara’s community, culture, and connectivity.

    Empowering artwork that will allow space for authentic conversations, the collection reflects on the most frequently symbolized part of not only the human body but of human interaction. Our actions, gestures, movements, and connections remind us that the symbolism of our hands is rich and varied.

    "He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist."
