The Art Galley of Bancroft will mount what it calls “two highly political exhibitions” to recognize National Truth and Reconciliation efforts.
The topic of “Truth” will be explored in its September exhibit and “Reconciliation” in the October show.
Truth will feature artwork by Indigenous artists connected to Algonquins of Ontario.
Reconciliation will feature work by non-Indigenous or settler artists.
The Gallery says these exhibitions do not showcase the work of famous artists; but they are “made powerful by the rendering of personal and yet common Indigenous experiences.”
An opening reception for the Truth exhibit takes place on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
The Art Gallery of Bancroft is located at 10 Flint Ave. in Bancroft.
The shows come as Canadians get ready to recognize National Truth and Reconciliation Day on Saturday, Sept. 30.
