Opening reception Friday August 5, 7-9:30pm

For the past 10 years Frances Ward has been documenting “road work” during walks along city streets in Hamilton and surrounding areas.

“Years of traffic abuse…particularly industrial traffic and extreme weather conditions work together to produce what I consider to be some very exciting and appealing “drawings” in the pavement…images resembling organic subjects such as trees, animals, birds, people, etc as well as “abstract” compositions which make good use of beauty of line, contrast, shading and texture.”
