Art Keeps us Together

HUVAC & CHAC group exhibition
Throughout history and in all cultures visual artists have played a major role in reflecting the world in which they live. In Canada, some artists of Hungarian origin have given expression to their immigrant experience, others have so completely integrated into the Canadian art scene that one might be surprised to discover that they hail from Hungary. Many Canadian artists are attempting to enrich their art through explorations of their Hungarian roots.

The Canadian Hungarian Artists Collective (CHAC) of Montreal and the Hungarian Visual Artists of Canada (HUVAC) of Toronto have attempted to bring together a number of artists.The ice has been broken finally, and the two art groups had a joint exhibition in Toronto at the Hungarian Canadian Cultural from May 3rd to 11th, 2008
