Until May 29: All That You Touch. Seven contemporary artists work with unconventional materials to investigate issues such as connection to the land, familial and geographical history, and cultural stereotypes.

Until May 29: A Window on Paraskeva Clark. Clark is known for her vividly colourful and highly political paintings, but before she embarked on a career as an independent artist, she worked in the design department of Toronto’s Timothy Eaton Company. This exhibition offers a glimpse at the commissioned pieces she created while she worked there. See website for hours.

Open Tuesday and Wednesday, 10am to 6pm; Thursday and Friday, 10am to 9pm; Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 6pm. Closed Mondays. Free.
