    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."
