About

Nine photo based window murals celebrate community. Building on the success of previous years, the Town of Oakville has once again taken the initiative to invite a fresh cohort of artists to showcase their photographic murals in neighbourhood community and cultural centres. This year's theme of "Connextions" resonates with the current times, as it urges us to reconnect and strengthen our community bonds.

Through this exhibition, the town aims to foster a sense of community spirit and elevate the public realm. Each recreation and culture facility features a striking artwork prominently displayed on a window, allowing for easy outdoor viewing.

The artist offers about her work:

Photographed along the lakefront, Oakville's winds kiss Keessa. Nature swoons for her heart with the blues sung in the water and sky. We explored the Downtown Oakville area together as new Sheridan students and created this portrait to cherish the moment. Her golden skin wrapped in an oatmeal coloured natural cloth, paralleling our new home softly whispering its embrace.
