Art Around the Bay

Homage to Hamilton’s Around the Bay Road Race

One Painting per Kilometre in Exclusive Series

To honour the Around the Bay Race  which he ran in the late ’90s (only once; he discovered marathons are not his thing), Hamilton artist Dylan Swan has created one painting for every kilometre of the 30 km race. Called Art Around the Bay, the series will be exhibited March 9 – May 26, 2019 at the Art Gallery of Hamilton to mark the 125th anniversary of North America’s oldest road race. Paintings are added here as they are completed.
