Vintage Collection

It's our 20th anniversary, and this retrospective celebrates the themes which have become hallmarks of the Students' Art Gallery in the Child Development Centre at Hotel Dieu Hospital. From the beginning, fledgling artists attending pre-school to post-secondary programmes in this part of Eastern Ontario have been motivated to draw, paint, and construct artworks which connect to everyday life: their interests, activities, concerns and dreams.

And so this, the Vintage Collection, is an archival record chronicling a far reaching range of topics: things that go, local landmarks, indigenous plants and animal species, seasonal depictions, sports snapshots, and teddybears. The 20 images below represent the 6,000 artifacts which have been featured in 60 exhibitions here since the autumn of 1985.
