The Art Gallery of Mississauga gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Hazel McCallion Arts, Culture and Heritage Fund 2022 at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, a registered charitable public foundation serving the people of Mississauga.

Art Hive provides a free, creative, welcoming space that fosters positive mental health, inclusion, community, respect and learning through the creation of art; providing marginalized and diverse community members/groups a safe space to gather and create.
The Art Hive is a free community art studio that welcomes everyone as an artist and believes art making is an inherent human behaviour and supportive of positive mental health and well-being. It fosters self-directed art-making in community with others. Through creative activities and dialogues, individuals learn about themselves and others thereby strengthening both personal and community connections. The Open Studio Process provides an opportunity for stress relief and creative problem solving.

 

The Community Foundation of Mississauga has been matching acts of caring with community needs since 2001. Working with donors and the broader community, the Foundation invests in building strong and resilient places to live, work and play. By providing effective and efficient endowment options for donors, the Foundation is creating a lasting legacy of community vitality.

Press Release

March 9, 2022

The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) has been awarded grant funding from the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) – Employment and Social Development Canada.

The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM), its leadership team, and staff are excited to announce that the AGM has been awarded grant funding from Employment and Social Development Canada and the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). The NHSP is a federal grants and contributions program that provides funding for projects that make a difference in the lives of seniors and in their communities.

The NHSP grant funding will support an AGM Intergenerational Art Project that will partner seniors with students from high schools studying art. Together they will work on an art project that tells a story about the senior’s life and/or life experiences. An intergenerational art program provides an opportunity for older adults to connect to their community and lift them out of isolation. Art making aids several areas of mental health, such as providing alternate and supplementary forms of communication, building new skills and fostering a sense of identity.

The Executive Director is pleased to announce an exciting schedule of exhibitions and programming that continues to engage and connect with the vibrant community of Mississauga. Currently exhibiting until March 31st is a tribute to frontline workers, …till all are healed, curated by Asma Mahmood showcasing 27 local Mississauga artists as well featuring artists Michele Taras and Charles Pachter.  On March 27th at 2:00pm the AGM celebrates the International Day for the Elimination of Racism with an artist talk by Nadine Williams. The AGM is also featuring the return of the CONTACT photography festival in May and June. In addition to the exhibition schedule the AGM offers a robust schedule of online and in person workshops and artist talks. An events calendar is located on the homepage which includes our March Break programming:  www.artgalleryofmississauga.ca.
