We have also hosted pop-up shows in the Tunnels and Cottages, and online. Use the images below to navigate and learn more.
Bottled Up: The Secrets of Prohibition Era Etobicoke
Spring 2022 - Spring 2023
The corner of Kipling and Lake Shore Boulevard has been a central hub for the community as a hotel for the majority of its history. Explore the storied tale of prohibition era Ontario and how it influences New Toronto - including bar fights, legal issues, "blind pigs," and an obscure connection to an underground alcohol smuggling ring!
Third Floor Gallery
Featuring Artist Susannah Smith
January 23 - April 14, 2023
New Toronto based artist Susannah Smith is continually inspired by the landscape and histories in South Etobicoke as reflective and contemplative spaces. Drawing connections between the natural world and its cycles with her own journey with mental health, Soul Existence presents the original artwork and stories in the words of the artist herself.
Propose an Exhibition
We feature solo and group art shows on the third floor of the Student Welcome and Resource Centre and also welcome contributions to our bi-annual exhibitions in the Interpretive Centre's main space in WEL104.
Themes must connect to one of our four guiding themes of Indigenous heritage, mental health history, educational heritage, or ecology, and/or highlight the local history of the Lakeshore Grounds region. Submissions are encouraged both from community members and students. We support artists of all experience levels.
