Montgomery’s Inn Art Exhibition Series

Summer 2019

  • Community Room (to August 30): “​Wildlife in the City” by Lisa Compton. These pictures focus on animals and the way they are part of the community and the joy they bring to the residents. Animals also help to heal; this is often evident when Lisa sees the therapy animals at the rehab hospital where she work, at nursing homes, and even seniors enjoying the squirrels and pigeons in our beautiful parks and green spaces. . Reception: Saturday, June 15,  2 to 4 p.m. All welcome.
  • Briarly Room (To June 30): “Three Motifs” by Stefan Berg. Toronto-based painter and print maker Stefan Berg’s work explores the present domestic, economic and agricultural moment in Toronto and the Etobicoke region. Reception: Saturday, April 6, 2 to 4 p.m. All welcome.
