Up close and in motion

Selected Works from the Permanent Collection, Curated by Emma German

Rodman Hall Art Centre is home to a collection of nearly 1,000 works from the past three centuries, with a growing focus on current practices in contemporary Canadian art. The permanent collection is the result of a legacy of art collecting and philanthropy dating back to 1960 when Rodman Hall Art Centre was established as a public art gallery by community members. Up close and in motion, a year-long constantly changing exhibition, is an effort to make Rodman Hall’s holdings visible while highlighting the collection’s purpose as a tool for research, study, and interpretation. read more>>
