Fly Boys and War Brides - Leaving Canada for Love

Category » Arts & Culture Exhibition - Fly Boys and War Brides: Leaving Canada for Love May 01, 2015 to August 28, 2015 Presented By » Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is proud to present a special exhibition by Canadian artist Bev Tosh, titled War Brides and Fly Boys; Leaving Canada for Love. The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan brought thousands of airmen from overseas to Canada for pilot and air crew training. Contrary to what we normally think of as war brides, many of these men met and married Canadian women who left Canada to start a new life overseas. Over 4,000 women left Canada as the wives of Commonwealth air crew personnel as a result of the Second World War. Bev Tosh, whose mother was one of these unique war brides, has created a collection of portraits that tell the story of these women who took a leap of faith in order to build lives far from Canada.DATE: May 1 - August 28, 2015 LOCATION: Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, 9280 Airport Rd., Mount Hope, On TIME: 9 am to 5 pm ADMISSION: Regular admission rates applywww.warplane.com» View all events for Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

Rabbit

Category » Arts & Culture One-Eyed-Rabbit March 08, 2015 to May 24, 2015 Presented By » Art Gallery of Hamilton In the story of the exhibition, the One-Eyed-Rabbit is an artist and the gallery is his studio. In a playful atmosphere and through the story of this friendly rabbit, Montreal-based artist Jonathan Plante invites young people aged 4 to 10 (and kids of all ages!) to (re)discover the mysteries of visual perception in a variety of ways. The exhibition strikes a chord with viewers of all ages, because the One-Eyed-Rabbit is different. He has only one eye and would like to jump into his rabbit hole without chipping his teeth??? He meets a worm that has no eyes but can navigate through holes in the ground! Together they will discover the power of imagination and the inner workings of sight: a little with the eyes, a lot with the brain, always with the heart.On view: Sunday, March 8 to Sunday, May 24, 2015 Art Gallery of Hamilton, 123 King Street West, Hamilton, On.www.artgalleryofhamilton.com» View all events for Art Gallery of Hamilton.
