Greg Staats: Reciprocity & New Photographs

July 19 – August 31, 2008

Curator’s Talk: Thursday August 21 ,2008 @ 7 PM, all are welcome – admission is free.

The history of the Whitby area begins in the year 1792, when this land east of York (Toronto) was first surveyed prior to settlement. What is absent from the timeline is anything indigenous and non-European; this area was originally inhabited by the Huron and then the Iroquois, is dotted with burial sites, and was part of a major trail that ran from Lake Ontario up to what is now Midland. The name “Whitby”, given this place by that first European surveyor after a town in northeastern England, is actually Danish in origin, a remnant of the Danish invasion and settlement of that part of England around 900 CE. “Whitby” is a contraction of a name – one that originally meant “White Village”. The area’s pre-European history is barely acknowledged, surfacing to the level of popular recognition only in the name of the enormous sports complex in the town: Iroquois Park.
