Description

The R.S. Williams Piano Factory was a fixture in downtown Oshawa for almost half a century. In this exhibition, a selection of Thomas Bouckley photographs depicting the piano factory, are used to create a direct frame of reference for our experience of the work of four contemporary Canadian artists: Murray Favro, Alexander Graham, Ryan Legassicke, and Carl Zimmerman.
