The Women’s Art Association of Canada is thrilled to announce the 2nd annual BLACK & WHITE, Members Exhibition 2024, an exploration of the emotive and diverse possibilities found within the classic contrast of light and shadow.

Running from Thursday, January 18, through Saturday, February 17, 2024, the exhibition will run in both galleries inside WAAC, Dignam Gallery and Ruth Upjohn Gallery. Visitors will immerse themselves in a world where the absence of color doesn’t limit expression but rather enhances it.

BLACK & WHITE 2024 exhibition will be hosted inside the historic home of the Women’s Art Association of Canada, located at 23 Prince Arthur Ave, nestled in the vibrant Annex area of Toronto.

Join us for a journey through a diverse world of black and white artistry.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the Women’s Art Association of Canada operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
