Homage: Donald Stuart
Neckpieces Inspired by Outstanding Canadian Women
June 1-July 15, 2018

Homage is a collection of forty-one neck-pieces created as a celebration and tribute to Canadian women, past and present. Donald Stuart used the familiar form of the necklace to explore history from a fresh perspective. Necklaces are archetypal symbols of power and importance and are a fitting vehicle to represent seminal women in Canadian history. The choices of materials for each necklace are as varied as the women themselves, each infused with meaning and significance.

Ongoing Exhibition

Influencing Identity: Tourism and the Group of Seven
On Display until August 19, 2018.

Escape urban life and delve into the enthralling wilderness portrayed by the elite Group of Seven and its contemporaries. How did their experiences and representations of Canada define a collective Canadian identity? What about landscape came to represent Canada as a nation and still resides in contemporary society? Along with the alluring posters and brochures produced by the Canadian National Railway and the early Canada Parks Association, viewers will discover the parallel story of marketing the majestic Canadian landscape as a reflection of Canadian values and the definition of a national spirit.
