The Ontario government has put into place a Stay-at-Home-Order, effectively reinstating the closure of all non-essential businesses. Because of this Beaux Arts Brampton’s February show I Know Why will move to a virtual platform and will be featured on our website (


In light of this, the submission deadline for I Know Why has been extended until January 30th at 1pm, with notifications instead being sent out on February the 2nd. I Know Why will continue to run on the SAME dates from February 4th to 28th.

“…The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom…” (Maya Angelou, “Caged Bird” from Shaker, Why Don't You Sing? Copyright © 1983 by Maya Angelou.).

Black Art inspires! Encouraging us all to look forward with continued hope, anticipating an endless shift, a day when the cage door opens.

Beaux Arts Gallery stands in solidarity with the Black Community and recognizes its uniqueness, complexity, struggles and its beauty.

I Know Why, Beaux Arts’ February Feature Show seeks artworks from Black artists for an exhibition that not only demonstrates our committed effort to supporting Black culture and its many contributions to the arts, and also serve as a platform meant for the celebration of Black Artists, who undoubtedly deserve a place to be seen, heard, and above all, valued.

Please note: show format subject to change (depending on government regulations) also know that, when all live-operations are allowed, that art show tickets will be available through Eventbrite closer to the event date. Thank you for understanding during this pandemic
