We are excited to be showcasing the paintings of Katie Stiel for the month of November.
Katie Stiel is an emerging artist from Hamiton, ON who specializes in creating pop culture inspired paintings using acrylic on canvas. Designing under the name StielCity, Katie has spent the later part of this year producing multiple collections that have hung at Gameopolis, Sonic Unyon, and the Helson Gallery. She has also been commissioned to create custom canvases by several businesses and individuals throughout the GTA.
Inspired by the movies, music, and mass media imagery that has helped to shape her generation, Katie uses acrylics and canvas to recreate and re-imagine iconic moments, images, and figures within popular culture. Using an array of colors, the lively and recognizable images she creates are meant to speak to the inner fan, geek, and cinefile within all of us.

Homegrown Hamilton will be closed after 6pm on the evening of Monday July 22nd in support of The Hamilton Fringe Festival. Instead of working that night, we will be purchasing Fringe tickets for our employees and encouraging them to see a play of their choice. We are challenging other businesses to do the same.
We invite everyone to join us on Tuesday night for a special Open Jam. In honour of The Hamilton Fringe Festival we will be offering $5.50 pints of Homegrown Coffee Ale.
This Friday Homegrown Hamilton is pleased to be hosting the return of C.A. Smith. Formerly known to us Hamiltonians as Mayor McCa, Smith left the steel city almost a decade ago and relocated to the U.K. This weekend’s show marks his first Canadian performance in 2013. It is a show that should not be missed!
Supporting the night will be Gypsy Ghosts (from London, ON) and local superstar Mark Raymond.

This is my big Homegrown farewell message! First of all, thank you so much for BEING the Homegrown community. I can’t even go there with how amazing it’s been to know all of you at all hours of the day (and night) in my role as Social Media and Event Coordinator. You liked our pictures of food, you came to shows, appreciated the local art on our walls, and when you missed out on something you came to watch video online and encourage our local talent to persevere. You stuck it out while we experimented with new beers, you shared a cup of coffee, and when it was all said and done you went home and told us about it. This kind of support is more than just for this business - it is a reflection of the warmth and consistent enthusiasm in our city today, especially in the group of individuals who have found a place in what I affectionately refer to as the last hiding place on earth.
… to read the rest of my sentimental musings, and watch some of my fav video, you know… after the jump and stuff.
Open Jam is still a day away, but we’re getting pretty antsy!! Come out and enjoy our local talent, along with refreshing drink specials and some great musical support from the one and only Dave Gould on drums! Check some video from our other Open Jams after the jump!
Homegrown has an awesome new face in the kitchen! Colin Egan comes to us from Radius, and will be making all the tasty dishes you love, plus a few new delicious concoctions!
His specialty is in fusion cooking, and before Radius he spent 8 years working at The Rude Native. He’s been in Hamilton for two years, explaining, “I came because the restaurant explosion here is exciting, and there’s a lot of growth going on here.”
