RMG Fridays

Please note that there will be no RMG Fridays events taking place in July and August. RMG Fridays will resume in September with an exciting line-up of artists and musicians!

On the first Friday of the month, join the RMG in celebrating local talent. The gallery buzzes with live musical performances, interactive art experiences, open gallery spaces, social mingling and more. Suitable for music lovers, youth, families, date nights, and culture-vultures.

Each month at RMG Fridays, DRIFF (Durham Region International Film Festival) will be presenting a selection of shorts from their annual film programs. The goal of the DRIFF is to champion filmmakers and new artists in order to contribute to local, national, and international film landscapes. DRIFF aims to inspire filmmakers, movie buffs and the curious-minded with script-to-screen programming and extraordinary stories.

Free to attend | 7-10pm | Cash Bar | All ages welcome.

I, the Mountain dances the finest lines between indie, folk, and pop traditions. With music that blends rich harmonies and soaring choruses with natural and eclectic themes, I, the Mountain has carved out its own unique niche the Canadian music scene. Over the course of releasing two critically acclaimed EPs and a fresh release co-written by Simon Ward (The Strumbellas), I, the Mountain has shown that it is unafraid to grow and push the limits of their sound.

Exhibition Tour: “Oshawa Assembly” by Wes Peel

Inspired by the Thomas Bouckley Collection, Whitby-based artist Wes Peel’s photo-montages bring together various historical photographs of Oshawa to create narratives and different perspectives. His process combines digital and traditional methods, using the cyanotype process to give a nostalgic quality that is fitting for Peel’s historical reinterpretations.
