Art Circle

The Hamilton Art Circle is a group of 100 members with a shared interest in supporting art and artists in Hamilton.

Art Circle’s mission is to connect, converse, and contribute to the arts. We believe that the arts play a central role in enhancing the quality of life for individuals living in a community. Art Circle members meet regularly to attend talks given by local or visiting artists or curators who explain their unique artistic direction, take part in a workshop where members are encouraged to get their hands dirty and make art, or travel outside of Hamilton for a unique cultural learning experience.
