Sylvia Simpson is well known to Hamilton art lovers for her Hamilton (Ontario) cityscapes and street scenes. Currently, she has seventeen paintings on view at the Hamilton Public Library - 4th floor.

"Keeping Watch" is a large watercolour that depicts the Hamilton Cemetery on York St against the backdrop of homes on Woodbine Ave. "Hamilton: All Around the Harbour" is a bird's-eye view of the entire lower city stretching north to Rattlesnake Point and east to the CN Tower. "CAMCO and Fall Mums" shows the factory - since demolished - against a sea of flowers. "Ramona's Mother's Backyard" depicts a garden hide-a-way among the century frame houses in Dundas.

There are many other prints and paintings of homes and neighbourhoods to enjoy.The show continues till March 30/2007. Make sure you sign the guest book!

Simpson's work is also featured this May 12 and 13 on the Southwest Hamilton Artists' Studio Tour held every Mother's Day weekend.
