Sandy Fairbairn has been taking photographs of Niagara for over forty years, focusing on the people and places around him. His images of Niagara stretch back to the 1970s, and some of the scenes presented in Welland: Time Present Time Past will be shown in the Rose City for the very first time.
Many of these images recall the industrial history of the region, and others chronicle the ebb and flow of the downtown urban life of Welland. Fairbairn combines an historical awareness with a playful eye; evocative scenes and vibrant colour often meet in his visual histories.
This exhibition is both artistic and historical, and its installation at AIH STUDIOS on East Main Street in the downtown core of the city will offer visitors a very relevant space to consider these images of Welland, which span from nearly half a century to just last year.
Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday February 15 from 2 to 5 pm, the artist will be present and we hope to have a lively conversation around the exhibition.
AIH STUDIOS gallery hours are Friday to Sunday, from Noon to 5 PM, and by
