Rotunda Gallery September exhibit: Tomorrow Disappears by Jared Davison
Jared Davison’s photo art exhibit, Tomorrow Disappears: Vanishing Industry in Ontario, documents through photography the grim reality of the changing landscape of industry in the province and shows there is beauty to be found in these forlorn and desolate environments.

“Once vibrant workplaces throughout Ontario now echo with the impact of plant closures on our economy and social environment,” says Davison. “Many buildings, now abandoned, are left to the ravages of time while others have been demolished or adapted and re-purposed.”
The weathered, the eroding, the forlorn and desolate; these are the subjects of scrutiny in his work as an urban explorer. Davison’s work mindfully encourages intimate viewing, transforming the unnoticed and revealing the concealed beauties in the infinitesimal.
Tomorrow Disappears features images of regional factories such as the Breithaupt Block, Dominion Electrohome, Tiger Brand, the William Street Pump Station and RMS Machinery.
There will be an artist’s reception on Thursday, Sept. 5, 5-7 p.m.
