About

Not From Around Here is Alexa Samuels’ love letter to her hometown of Toronto and other places she’s visited. Her art celebrates urban streetscapes by shining unconventional light on hidden corners, back alleys, architectural underbellies and everyday landscapes’ seeming mundaneness. Her art turns iconic landmarks on their heads and rejoices in unsung street art. What begins as panoramic landscape photographs, Samuels’ images twist and turn, transforming into visuals that surprise, baffle and yet feel reassuringly familiar. 

There will be a Q&A with Alexa Samuels on July 1 from 3-4pm at the Marilyn Brewer Community Space.

This exhibition will be open to view until July 22.
