Arts & Culture Peter Karuna: All in Good Time June 09, 2011 to September 25, 2011 Presented By . Art Gallery of Hamilton Peter Karuna is a Hamilton-based visual artist working with photography, video, sculpture and installation art. This exhibition of photographs shows the range of his practice over the last forty-five years, since he began working as a press photographer in London, England, at the age of sixteen. Many of his images are candid they arrest rare moments when things ironic or beautiful align. Pictured here are scenes in London, England, Marseille, France, and Hamilton and surrounding areas. Karuna s longstanding commitment to ecological and social issues is evident. Time itself is a reigning theme in Karuna s works the mechanics of the medium of photography, and the poetics of time s passage. As broad as his subject matter is, time s fleeting character is a shared principle. Mostly black and white images, with a few in colour, the photographs were captured on film and digitally and are carefully printed by the artist. Karuna has been teaching at the Dundas Valley School of Art for more than twenty years. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and Sociology from the University of Guelph, and a teaching degree from Brock University. He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, screenings and festivals across Canada, as well as in Cuba, Scotland, the USA and Hungary. He has been a resident artist at educational institutions and galleries in Ontario and California. He is the recipient of numerous production grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council. Karuna s work is in private collections as well as the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Organization of Saskatchewan Art Councils, the Alberta College of Art, Queens University, the Mendel Gallery, and Trinity Square Video, Toronto. www.artgalleryofhamilton.com .
