Skylight Gallery - Located at Aurora Town Hall

In Aurora, supporting and nurturing the arts is a top priority.

The Town of Aurora's third floor Skylight Gallery is a fabulous open space, topped by a dramatic skylight, and is an area devoted to exhibitions by artists. Backboards and track lighting are set up to display artwork in a striking setting. Admission to this ever-changing art show is free.

Most of the artists are from York Region and occasionally beyond. The goal is to expose residents to local Canadian artists in a unique, convenient setting. The featured artist is invited to also hold a reception in the Skylight Gallery during his/her chosen month.


Monthly Feature Artist

Current Exhibit: "Historical Look at Ontario Landscapes" Artworks by Robert Hinves

Aurora's Online Skylight Gallery is featuring works by artist Robert Hinves. The artist enjoys creating paintings that speaks both to himself and to others about the beauty that exists in Ontario landscapes.

During his travels around Ontario, Robert has found many fascinating locations that have significant historical value. The artist draws inspiration from these encounters and creates incredibly detailed work; even capturing the eerie energy he must have felt while exploring. Robert works predominately in pen, ink and watercolour, generating a more vibrant look with each piece he creates. The works Robert creates emit feelings of quiet solitude and curiosity. The viewer might wonder to themselves, “Who used to live here? Why is this old barn abandoned?” as they enjoy these pieces.

Enjoy “Historical Look at Ontario Landscapes” during the month of June.  To inquire about purchasing artwork, please contact Andrea Araujo.
