100 Years in the Neighbourhood
Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
In celebration of Central Neighbourhood House's 100th birthday, we have partnered with Cabbagetown Regent Park Community Museum to restore 100 photographs of CNH, it's people and its community. 50 - 60 of the best will be on exhibit at MJG Gallery, 555 Parliament Street, from November 17 to November 20.
CNH's history came alive in "the ward", just west of Yonge Street, at that time a place of profound poverty. As the people moved, so did CNH, and has lived at locations in and around Cabbagetown and Parliament Street in the years since. Photos - the majority of which were amateur, and existed only as small prints - show the people and places of the neighbourhood throughout the depression, two world wars, and the years between.
Join us for the official opening on November 17, as special guests, former Toronto Mayors David Crombie and Barbara Hall take a look back at the history of Toronto's downtown and the development of the Settlement House movement. See Toronto at its best and worst, in the early years of the last century.
MJG Gallery is Cabbagetown's only artist-run and owned gallery. Mark Jeremy Gleberzon is a veteran of numerous indoor and outdoor shows and fairs and is happy to finally have a space to feature his "Landscapes", "Cityscapes", Chair" and "Whimsy" acrylic paintings along with work from fellow artists including Bev Jenkins, Marjolyn van der Hart, Blair Chivers, Laura Culic, Lorne Wisebrod, Carol Westcott, Andrea Rinaldo, James Stacey and others. Located at 555 Parliament St, open Wednesday thru Sunday 11-6. Follow goings-on on Facebook under "MJG Gallery by Mark Jeremy Gleberzon" or call 416.923.4031 for more details
