Latcham Art Centre inspires the community to engage with visual art through exhibitions of contemporary art and education programs.
Both Sides Now: Paintings by Gary Evans and Frances Thomas
Open: Friday, May 20 – Saturday, July 2, 2022
Reception: Friday, May 27, 2022 | 7 – 9 PM
In Both Sides Now, Gary Evans & Frances Thomas exhibit two strikingly distinct approaches to abstract painting, and pathways that are embedded with an undeniable je ne sais quoi that tethers their organic language. The title of this exhibition is inspired by Joni Mitchell’s song of the same name and provides a lyrical entry point into the connection between the work of these artists; the two modes in which they paint, the way they address their subject and surface, and the hard to define connection between Evans’ use of density and Thomas’ tendency towards space.
Guest Curated by Carol–Ann Ryan.

Latcham Art Centre is thrilled to be partnering once again with the graduating class of Stouffville District Secondary School (SDSS) in the exhibition A Shattered Symphony. For over two decades, the grade twelve art students from SDSS have worked with the Art Centre’s curator to mount a professional exhibition that presents the artworks they have created over the course of their first semester. This year, due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, this annual exhibition will be launched exclusively online through the Latcham Art Centre website on December 14, 2021.
