Snow Storms and Stories
November 21, 2008 - January 4, 2009
“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.” – E.E.Cummings
As the end of the year approaches, the Gallery will honour the depths of the winter with a special exhibition of historical and contemporary art. Across the holiday season a diverse range of two and three-dimensional artworks will evoke scenes of holiday festivity, snowy comforts and austere northern vistas.
Featured artists in this celebration of things cold and Canadian include Lawren Harris, Bertram Brooker, David Milne, the Beaver Hall Hill Group, Parr and Jessie Oonark. Selections vary from handmade Christmas cards by the Group of Seven to recent photography of the Northwest Territories and Inuit stone and sealskin prints.
