● Athletics

● Entertainment and Media
● Public Service
● Business, Innovation and Science

YouTube video, 1:19 min. Published on Jul 1, 2017 by sq1oac2. "Solo performance by singer and guitarist Brandon Gregory at Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) in Brampton, Ontario for the opening of the featured exhibition, Peel 150: Stories of Canada, June 29, 2017."

Info from PAMA:

This July and August, admission to the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) is FREE! Join PAMA for the opening of the featured exhibition, Peel 150: Stories of Canada and a FREE kick-off celebration on Thursday, June 29, 2017, 6-9 pm - just in time for Canada's 150th birthday on July 1, 2017.

The County of Peel (now Region of Peel) and the Peel County Courthouse and Jail at PAMA, are all celebrating their 150th. At the kick-off celebration, meet Indigenous artist James Simon Mishibinijima, enjoy special musical guests and Aboriginal drumming performances by the Peel Aboriginal Network (PAN), and a Canada 150 scavenger hunt with great prizes to be won!

To create the featured exhibition, Peel 150: Stories of Canada, PAMA asked hundreds of visitors: "What does Canada mean to you?" People's love for Canada came through strongly in the themes of truth, peace, home, community, land, creativity, and innovation. Inspired by these themes, PAMA staff used rich artifact, archival, and art collections, as well as works borrowed from artists, to create this jam-packed exhibition.

Woven throughout the exhibition are the beautiful and haunting paintings of Indigenous artist, James Simon Mishibinijima. His art interprets the tragic impacts of the residential school system on his mother and many generations.

Visitors will also experience an exhibition featuring a huge Victory Bond flag awarded to Chinguacousy Township in 1918 (and recently conserved by the Canadian Conservation Institute), and a mock-up of the cockpit of the Avro Arrow created by Avro engineers in the 1950s, both from the PAMA Museum Collection. The exhibition includes selected pieces from PAMA's rich permanent art collection, among them historical landscapes of the Peel Region, an incredible sketchbook from artist Tom Thomson, sculptures, large abstract paintings and small format prints and drawings.

Location: Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives (PAMA) is located at the corner of Wellington Street and Main Street, opposite Brampton's City Hall. 9 Wellington St E, Brampton, ON L6W 1Y1 Canada
