Hamilton artist Christopher Reid Flock has been turning heads at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE) since his arrival at the annual event in 2010.

Flock snagged the Best in Ceramics and Award of Excellence in his first year. Last year, he nabbed the TOAE Honourable Mention Award.

His ceramic works of art will be back again this year. From July 6 to 8 at Nathan Phillips Square, Flock's masterpieces will be on display once again.

"It's important for people across Canada, not just in Toronto," Flock said. "Hamilton is an extraordinary cultural place and I think unfortunately there's a barrier of the steel mills that often gets overlooked."

Flock hopes that he, along with other Hamilton artists, will help showcase local talent.

Other artists taking part in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition include: Gordon Leverton, Justin BlayneyLorraine RoyPaul EliaFrances Ward
