Painting in Canada Part 2

Our travels continue through post confederation Canada with the impressionistic style paintings by members of the Canadian Art Club, to the struggle to define nationalism as seen in the works of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, and their contemporaries Emily Carr and David Milne. We will also study the works of great modern painters such as Alfred Pellan, Paul Emile Borduas and Jean Paul Riopelle. The 1950s and 60s produced great abstract artists such as Jock MacDonald and Jack Bush, and in the Maritimes; Bruno Bobak, Molly Bobak, Christopher Pratt, Mary Pratt, Alex Colville. These and many other 20th century Canadian painters will be discussed.

This program is designed for those who would like to discover artifacts and art history, appreciate North Hills Museum and the surrounding community. Each session will include a power point presentation on a selected theme, a guided tour of the collection where applicable and delicious baked treats and refreshments. Each lecture is $10.00 per person. A great way to spend fall Tuesdays!
