Just the Four of Us

Opening reception August 19, 7-9

PORT CREDIT, ON – During the month of August, Imagemaker Gallery is presenting the work of four very different artists, Margaret Byerley, June Hoffland, Barbara Clarke and Terry Gardner.

Their techniques range from acrylic abstract interpretations with wild washes of colour and texture, to softer watercolour images to landscape paintings.

“I find the medium of watercolours to be challenging, but perfect for expressions of subtle colour and intimate detail,” quotes Hoffland.

Gardner says, “My abstracts often result in moody landscape works, which lead the viewer to discern shapes and forms within them. There is something of the real world recognizable in my paintings.”

This eclectic group of artists believes that painting directs one to observe their surroundings carefully and to see the environment with a completely new set of eyes. Byerley says, “Sometimes I’m completely awed by how the pursuit of art has changed my perception of the world.”

Hurontario LRT Project Update

Feb 03, 2016 — At today’s General Committee meeting an update was provided on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, the largest infrastructure project in the City’s history. Metrolinx, the Ontario Provincial Government agency responsible for implementing and integrating regional transit in the Greater Toronto Area is leading the procurement and construction of the project with the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga as partners.

“We are working with our partners to bring much needed rapid transit to Hurontario,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “This project is a city building game changer for Mississauga that will offer residents a new and convenient way to travel and ensure the Hurontario corridor grows in a sustainable way.”

“The City is currently negotiating a Memorandum of Agreement with Metrolinx that provides an overall operating framework between the parties and sets the stage for future agreements,” said City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer Janice Baker. “Metrolinx intends to own, operate and maintain the Hurontario Light Rail Transit system. The City will be expected to subsidize operating costs that benefit local transit users. Working together, we will determine this level of detail through a future final Master Agreement process.”

The project update included plans to create a Hurontario LRT Ad Hoc Council Working Group composed of Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Councillors most impacted by the project including, Jim Tovey – Councillor Ward 1, John Kovac – Councillor Ward 4, Carolyn Parrish – Councillor Ward 5 and Nando Iannicca – Councillor Ward 7.

“The working group is to keep members of Council advised of project developments,” said Joe Perrotta Director, Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project Office. “It will include City of Mississauga and Metrolinx staff and consultant representatives as required. Matters requiring decisions or further input will come forward to General Committee.”

City of Mississauga staff is coordinating efforts with Metrolinx along with researching best practices in other similar projects. Staff from the City’s Hurontario Light Rail Transit Office will be reporting to General Committee at key project milestones.
