Art Windsor-Essex respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Anishinaabe Territory – the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprised of the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. Today the Anishinaabe of the Three Fires Confederacy are represented by Bkejwanong. We want to state our respect for the ancestral and ongoing authority of Walpole Island First Nation over its Territory.

Look Again! Outside brings Art Windsor-Essex outside the gallery walls, expanding from AWE’s installation of reproductions in downtown Windsor and Amherstburg.
Found across Sandwich Towne, five artwork reproductions stop visitors in their tracks and spark conversations about the past, present, and future of the neighbourhood from the perspective of its residents. Co-curated by Sandwich resident, Reginald S. Tolson, the works of Frederick Verner, Kenneth Saltmarche, Fritz Brandtner, Daphne Odjig, and Eleanor Bond invite us to co-imagine our collective future.
Reginald S. Tolson is a resident of Sandwich Towne, and a third-year Business Administration student at University of the People. He has a passion for innovative urban planning solutions which promote sustainable work/life balances. When he is not studying, he enjoys casual research, yarn crafting, gardening and digital world-building.
