Information on the Exhibitions:

Blue God and the Serpents is a multi-media exhibition by Brampton-basedartist Sharada Eswar and her collaborative team of Sonja Rainey and Rup Sidhu. This is the Ontario debut of this art project conceived as a shadow puppet theatre, telling us the story of the 10 incarnations of Vishnu. Peeling back layers, the project discusses imbalance on earth, untold truths, and deals with finding our own personal balance inside.

“We are excited for the Ontario debut of our art project. Better yet, as a Brampton resident I am excited to launch this exhibition at PAMA in my community! We invite visitors of all ages to come and explore this unique exhibition and be immersed in our opening performance on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 3 – 4 p.m.” says artist Sharada Eswar.

150 Muslim Contributions to Canada, is an exhibit highlighting members and groups from the Muslim community and the positive impact they’ve had on Canada. This exhibition was launched at MuslimFest this summer and now travels to PAMA along with some fantastic programming happening in early October celebrating Islamic Heritage Month.

“We are thrilled to showcase this travelling exhibition with our partners from MuslimFest and to share the dynamic stories from artists in the Muslim community in celebration of Islamic Heritage Month in October” says PAMA Art Gallery Curator Tom Smart. “At PAMA we are striving to create safe and inclusive spaces to share in the stories of our diverse community. We invite you to explore, create and connect with arts and culture and learn about one another.”
