A special event celebrating three new exhibitions is organized by the Art Gallery of Burlington.

La Ruche takes place on Saturday, August 27, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This free event for all ages integrates the organization, cooperation and energy of a hive into an afternoon of art, activity, learning and fun.

The Hive will feature a special workshop led by Toronto’s Clay and Paper Theater, live arts and crafts demonstrations, screen printing presentation, live performance, food and drink.

The event is organized to celebrate AGB’s three new autumn exhibitions:

  • The future of workan exploration of how the pandemic has affected labor markets and our quality of life
  • ਨਜਰ ਨਾ ਲੱਗੇ/Nazar na lage/Touch wooda vibrant and meaningful interpretation of rangoli art by artist Noni Kaur
  • Know your placean exhibition of cartoon-like clay sculptures that reveal the raw emotional experiences of artist Sami Tsang

Known for its work inspired by oral traditions, folk songs, poems and fables, Clay and Paper Theater will charm attendees and audiences with its original multidisciplinary performance-based production. Guests wishing to participate in the Clay and Paper Theater should arrive early and be ready to create.

Visitors are invited to an interactive screen printing demonstration led by artist Jesse Purcell and are encouraged to bring any used clothing to be made into a garland to be hung in the gallery by the artist collective Works-in-Progress.

Arts Burlington will open its doors to guests with art demonstrations and the Burlington Handweavers and Spinners Guild will guide guests through a natural plant-based dye demonstration, teaching attendees what they need to know to create at home.

AGB parking will be free for the day. For more information, visit the AGB website.
