I See: Difference in Perspective is an exploration of identity and disability through the medium of photography. Through striking photographic imagery, we invite the viewer to enter into a world of empowerment and storytelling, framed by 17 perspectives. We are engaging in a conversation; capturing the unique exchange of artist, disability, and Toronto. Each photo in this gallery is a reflection of the individual's focus, chosen by each artist. These photos are statements on the lived experience of young artists with disabilities.

An exhibition of the political cartoons and landscape paintings of the Canadian artist Josh Silburt (1914-1991). Silburt began his artistic training under Group of Seven member L.L. Fitzgerald at the Winnipeg
School of Art in the 1930’s. His political cartoons appeared in all major Toronto newspapers in the early 1940’s. Silburt’s artistic ambition collided head on with his politics and Jewish identity throughout the upheavals of the Great Depression and WWII. After 1947, he gave up cartooning and became a prolific painter, developing his own unique style of palette knife application, capturing the beauty and ruggedness of his beloved Canada. Ralph Wintrob will be presenting a tie-in lecture about the history of political cartooning in Canada on Thursday September 28 at 1:30 pm (admission is $5).
