Central - Gallery 4 Annex

Hamilton Public Library supports local artists, artisans and organizations by providing free exhibition space.

Janice Kovar’s work reflects themes of memory, fragmentation, architectural form, and landscape. 

Her work is highly textural and process driven and is suggestive of both natural and manufactured materials and forms in the environment. By working with a varied use of materials such as cold wax, acrylic, plaster, wood, collage, screen printing and drawing, she plays with the unexpected and random.  Her work looks at movement, change, light, decay, and growth, and connects with the ebb and flow of nature. Often, her mixed media art works relate to site specific environments in the Hamilton area and reinterprets them through an abstract lens, with a focus on urban decay and renewal.      

Janice Kovar is a Hamilton-based artist who has shown in many group and solo exhibitions within the Hamilton area and abroad. She received her Fine Arts degree from McMaster University, and a B.Ed from Queen’s University. She lives in Hamilton and teaches visual art at Sir Allan MacNab Secondary and continues her art practice from her studio at the Cotton Factory.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
