The Second exhibition from the TH&B Artist Collective at 270 Sherman is now underway in the 3rd Floor Mill Gallery space. The first offering was in 2008, which was a huge success, so we were thrilled to have been approached by the Collective this past year to do a follow up show. This follow up show, on exhibition now until May 12, 2012 is a collection of 20 artists – some original, and some new members to the collective – exhibiting works all inspired by the industrial landscape of Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo, industrial materials, and the space in which the exhibition is taking place. The works are often oversized to match the scale of the space, and many are interactive.
As a facility, 270 Sherrman is so happy and thankful to the TH&B artists for bringing in their works and offering a fresh perspective on our 30,000 squarefoot multipurpose space; for letting the space inspire them, and in turn inspire everyone who makes it out to this 4 week exhibition. 270 Sherman donates the space for use to the TH&B show, and in turn asks only that people come and share in this experience. The facility is not often open to the public, and we hope the community can capitalize on this opportunity.
There are still chances to see this exhibition:
Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th, 10:00AM to 4:00PM - Doors Open Hamilton
Saturday May 12th, 8:00PM to 10:00PM – Closing Performances

The opening event, which took place April 21, 2012, was fantastic. Attendance was in excess of 500 people over the course of the night, with people coming from all over Hamilton’s creative community, and beyond. The Collective also organized a bus to bring a group of attendees from Toronto, and many others made their way down to Hamilton as well.
We wanted to share a few snaps of the Opening Reception:
