Margaret Hantiuk Exhibit Snow Birds: Strangers in Paradise

Sept 25-Oct 4, 2020

Non Social Opening: Friday, September 25, 2020, 7:00 p.m. -9:00 p.m.

This series of oil paintings by artist Margaret Hantiuk is based on wintertime travels to Mexico, chronicling the annual migration of retired Canadians to warmer climes. This collision of two very different cultures creates an interesting narrative: the ‘snowbirds’ are at leisure while the Mexicans are struggling to get by, but the Mexicans are at home, the snowbirds are not: the climate, terrain and culture are a dislocation.

This exhibition is being featured at Culture Days 2020 – you can read about it here.

In addition to the self-guided tour, visitors may also review images and video of the artist online at our website.
