Excerpt from Wikipedia:

The Art Gallery of Burlington, founded in 1978, is the seventh largest public art gallery in Ontario. The Gallery collects and maintains Canada's largest collection of contemporary Canadian ceramics. It is located on the City of Burlington waterfront in close proximity to Spencer Smith Park. The Gallery is a non-profit registered charitable organization that provides free admission to over 100,000 visitors each year to exhibitions, educational programs, studios and other activities.

It was formed by several active visual arts co-operatives and guilds in the Burlington region. It was opened in 1978 as a facility for art groups to develop dedicated studios, photography, hand weaving, spinning, sculpture, woodcarving, ceramics, fine arts, and hooking craft know today as Arts Burlington. The Gallery expanded and it started to become a public art gallery with exhibitions, publications, and a collection (begun in 1983) of contemporary Canadian ceramic art and educational programs. The facility has undergone two capital expansions (1991 & 2001) in response to the increasing need for collection storage, studios, and revenue generation.

Rebecca
Haydn Llewellyn Davies
Pained Aluminum, 1978

Artist Haydn Llewellyn Davies is best remembered in Burlington for his orange aluminum sculpture Rebecca, a fixture on Lakeshore Road since 1978. The former advertising executive changed careers late in life and became a highly-regarded sculptor. His large sculpture A Space Composition for Rebecca has stood on the south side of the Art Gallery of Burlington since its opening. The artwork explores the interplay between mass and void in defining space. A trip to Stonehenge and several visits to Japan influenced Davies conception for Rebecca. Davies was born in Wales and was inspired by the country’s tradition and landscape.

Alumina
Greg Payce, 2008

Purchased through the fundraising efforts of the Burlington Art Centre Collection Committee and with the support of the Canada Council of the Arts Acquisition Assistance Program, the Elizabeth L. Gordon Art Program of the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation, the City of Burlington and Karp Namisniak Yamamoto Architects Inc.

Alumina was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Burlington in 2008. Payce explores the relationships between form and imagery and the connections of objects and ideas in his artwork. Alumina was inspired by late eighteenth century French Sevres vases and Renaissance Mediterranean apothecary jars (albarelli). The artwork showcases the negative spaces between pottery forms as apertures or images. The viewer’s gaze shifts back and forth between the positive and negative space and invites them to determine possible relationships between the vessels and the images formed between them. This juxtaposition between image and object creates an illusion of movement and references time-based artforms such as animation and music.

Excerpt from artgalleryofburlington.com:

Division of Labour is an exhibition bringing together artists who address issues of class, race, and labour as they relate to cultural waste. Including the works of nine artists who utilize recycled material in their work to illustrate the power and potential of reused matter for artistic production, the exhibition and ancillary programming are designed to educate about the scarcity of resources, labour rights, and the lack of living wages in the arts.

Featuring ro Barragan (Buenos Aires), Patrick Cruz (Toronto), Atom Cianfarani (Montreal), Nicolas Fleming (Toronto), Marlene Jess (Vancouver), Lisa Meecham (Burlington), Joaquin Wall (Buenos Aires), Allyson Vieira (New York), and Shellie Zhang (Toronto).

We are living in a time of increasing economic uncertainty, wage gaps, and class divides. Barter economy systems, critical discourse about consumption, and circuits of solidarity exchange are more present than ever in the daily working lives of artists and cultural producers. Division of Labour uses this moment to consider the true cost of artists’ labour and economic parity through their recovery of and access to excess material. The exhibition is not simply a display of objects constructed from trash, but works to support the building of new networks, resources, and methods for the sustainability of artists’ work. It goes beyond accessing free material to open dialogue about the systemic issues inherent in class dynamics, underemployment, and labour exploitation that plague the cultural industry.
