A new Locally Grown exhibit is opening at Halton Hills’ Helson Gallery today, Wednesday, April 19.

The theme of this year’s annual exhibit explores the idea of Further Afield.

“Travel is becoming more common as the world adapts to COVID-19. This includes exploring more within our own communities, towns, provinces, country or further abroad,” said a gallery spokesperson. “Come see local artists’ interpretation of this theme, whether expressed literally, emotionally, or imaginatively.”

This year’s show features more than 50 artists exhibiting in a variety of mediums, and is on view until June 18.

“It is wonderful that the Town of Halton Hills can provide the opportunity to our local artists to display and offer work for sale in the Helson Gallery. It’s exciting to see such creative work from our talented community,” said Mayor Ann Lawlor.

The Helson Gallery is located at 9 Church St., Halton Hills and is open Wednesday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
