There has been a new development on the Portable Library Project front...the third PLP exhibition has just been scheduled at a great little shop/gallery called Mixed Media in Hamilton. The opening is on June 11th, 2010 and the show will run until July 3rd. Opening night will coincide with Hamilton's well-known James Street North Art Crawl, that happens the evening of the second Friday of each month.
More on Mixed Media, from their website:
Mixed Media is Hamilton’s only independent art shop. Having only been open since October 2005, this locally owned and independent store is already creating a stir in the local arts community. Specializing in art and printmaking supplies, specialty paper and stationery products. Mixed Media also features locally made gift items, greeting cards, books and magazines and a pretty cool art gallery. We strive to do things differently and creatively and hope to inspire a few bystanders along the way.
Mixed Media is located in the historic James North neighbourhood of Hamilton, Ontario. This diverse cluster of restaurants, shops, churches and galleries makes for an interesting day out. Just a short walk away from both Downtown Hamilton and the beautiful waterfront area.
For even more on Mixed Media, check out their website, as well as this short video which features an interview with Dave Kuruc (owner of Mixed Media) about the changing face of Hamilton, and it's creative community.
