HISTORICAL SCENES OF NIAGARA AVAILABLE FROM TAG ART GALLERY
TAG Art Gallery is proud to have an excellent collection of lithographs, drawings, paintings and maps of diverse scenes throughout Niagara, particularly works produced from the mid-18th to the early-20th centuries. The collection is highlighted by historically-significant works showing that natural wonder, “the Falls of Niagara”. Drawings by on-the-spot visitors (from as early as 270 years ago) were in great demand by European (and, later, U.S. and Canadian) publishers to produce coloured illustrations for travel books and journals and for sets of frameable engravings. There are also fascinating depictions of Brock’s Monument at Queenston; views of Niagara-on-the-Lake and Fort Erie; and scenes of the Welland Canals at St. Catharines and Port Dalhousie.
The original artists were well-known visitors or residents in Niagara, including Charles Popple, R. Hancock, W.H. Bartlett, J.P. Cockburn, I.F. Bouchette, G.A. Blouet, Thomas Benecke, Isaac Weld and Fred Holloway. Later works are the aquatint etchings of Nicholas Hornyansky and watercolours by T.H. Wilkinson and Thomas Mower Martin. From this collection, there is a limited number of prints being offered for sale at our on-line store. Please click on the images above to make your selections.

Tom and Frank Goldspink of TAG Art Gallery were pleased to host more than 175 people on the evening of April 19th, 2018, for the year-end Celebration by the 2018 Graduates of the Niagara College Graphic Design Program in the School of Media Studies. Joyful and proud family and friends of the celebrating students, along with College staff , packed the Gallery for the two-hour event. Each graduate had two large poster-boards on display, featuring a summary of their final thesis, and a portfolio of selected projects from their three years of study. Their artistic and academic achievements proved to be a wonderful intertwining of “the practical, the technical, and the imaginative.” In the afternoon, the Gallery was the locale for an Industry ‘Meet-and-Greet’ where the Graduates and prospective employers mingled for two hours. This is the 9th year that TAG Gallery has hosted Niagara College. ‘Thank you.’ from Tom and Frank to all those who made the event such a success. Below is a slide show of the evening and daytime activities. (Photo credits: @beccaphotography and TAG Art Gallery)
