Exhibition: Women who defined Canadian Art
An exhibition featuring works for sale by 30 important historical Canadian painters from the 1920’s through the 1970’s. While the Group of 7 dominated the national conversation in painting, a driven and resilient group of women carved their own record of artistic development in their studios from coast to coast. Often overlooked and under-recognized, these artists continue to grow in popularity with major retrospective exhibitions cementing their place in history. Artists include members of the Beaver Hall Group, Emily Carr, Kathleen Moir Morris, Prudence Heward, Doris McCarthy, Molly Lamb Bobak, Joyce Wieland, Marcelle Ferron, Rita Letendre and others.
