The Welland Tribune - - Local -

The works of Carl Beam, a con­tem­po­rary Indige­nous artist, will be ex­hib­ited at FirstOn­tario Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre through­out the year.

Beam is widely con­sid­ered to be one of the most sig­nif­i­cant artists in Cana­dian con­tem­po­rary art his­tory.

He was the first Indige­nous Cana­dian whose con­tem­po­rary art was pur­chased by the Na­tional Gallery of Canada.

He lived from 1943 to 2005.

The ex­hi­bi­tion’s open­ing re­cep­tion will be­gin at 5 p.m. to­day with an hour­long panel dis­cus­sion called Indige­nous-Set­tler Re­la­tions in Ni­a­gara on the first floor of the Al­goma Lobby.

Re­marks and ex­hi­bi­tion view­ing will con­tinue in the Joy Wil­liams Lobby on the sec­ond floor at 6 p.m.

The ex­hibit is free and open to all.
