Put the "Her" in Heritage

Celebrating the stories of women in this exhibition for Canada’s 150.

Arts Commons is happy to welcome three unique exhibits to the Window Galleries this June. Focusing on alternative narratives and giving voice to those who might have been excluded from the first 150 years. Window Galleries from June-August will focus on the telling of women’s stories of their relationships, hopes, communicating and the strength of perseverance through adversity. These 3 exhibitions show the tenderness and strength of personal and cultural history, these exhibits feature artists Hannah Doerksen, Nicole Kelly Westman, Areum Kim, and sisters Brittney and Richelle Bear Hat.

The Window Galleries at Arts Commons consist of seven display spaces which provide exhibition opportunities for two dimensional and sculptural works, running in three month intervals and are open to all emerging and professional artists and collectives.
