ALP’s choice for
ART TO SEE THIS WEEKEND:
RustBelt: New work by Paul Elia
September 10-24, 2010.
Socald Studio Gallery
244 James Street North
Having met Paul a year ago at one of his Queen Street W exhibits, I was new to Toronto and excited to ask him about Toronto’s art scene. What I got was a tip-off about a little place nearby called Hamilton and a good sense of how passionate this digital print artist is about architecture and community.
Paul is a heritage whisperer of sorts, and his civic vision is super-simple and super-detailed – urban decay brings artists, and artists renew neighborhoods in neglect. I guess that’s why he convinced me to move to Hamilton.
