AGW Cares – Essential Workers Thank You

October 8, 2020 - January 4, 2022

Jane E. Brindley Creative Centre, 2nd floor

When the Art Gallery of Windsor closed its doors in Spring 2020 to stop the spread of COVID-19, we wanted to find a way to thank essential service providers while supporting artists, the community and the gallery. We knew it would be hard to say “thank you” when we can’t leave our houses – so we came up with a plan.

The Art Gallery of Windsor selected a dozen artists in our community and commissioned them to create original artworks as a thank you to front-line workers in various sectors.

Are you a postal worker? A real estate agent? A bus or taxi driver? A sanitation worker? A grocery store employee or agricultural worker? A doctor or nurse? Or a worker in some other frontline essential service? Please contact the Art Gallery of Windsor. We would be delighted to drop off a poster with you at your place of work as a thank you for keeping us safe. Posters for essential workers are limited edition – first come, first served.

Signed limited edition prints of the commissioned artworks are also available for sale to the general public for $100 each. All sales support the Art Gallery of Windsor. Visit for more information.

Thank you to the frontline essential workers of Windsor-Essex, for keeping us safe and healthy while we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19. And thank you to the artists who agreed to work with the Art Gallery of Windsor on this project: Briana Benore, Kristina Bradt, Talysha Bujold-Abu, Rashmi Dadwal, David Derkatz, Stephen Gibb, Stephanie Mele, Jay Raven, Graeme Skelton, Dennis Smith, Owen Swain and George Rizok.
