Look Again! The AGW Collection at 75 Years
November 30, 2018

Three years ago, the AGW made a multi-year commitment to showcase the Gallery’s Collection to provide opportunity for sustained engagement in learning about art in Canada and to support visitor experience and student learning. We are thrilled to launch its next iteration. This exhibition continues to profile themes of Canadian Heritage and the Land and Portraiture and the Body, and celebrates the historical collections leading to the 20th century. This time we will enrich these topics with more diversity and feature new acquisitions, many of which expand the Gallery’s ongoing commitment to cultural diversity. For the student and teacher experience this exhibition is supported by AGW’s continued commitment to supporting the Ontario Provincial Curriculum in seven programs serving grades K-12. This exhibition will include many of your favorite works and those which have truly defined the Gallery’s collection - Prudence Heward, Emily Carr, members of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Enriched is the Gallery’s continuing commitment to Indigenous histories, especially in the Great Lakes basin, for example works by Bonnie Devine, Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig and Angus Trudeau. The AGW collection - it’s your resource to enjoy and share with family and friends, colleagues and peers. A special thank you is extended to our multi-year exhibition sponsors who include The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation, Windsor Mold Group, The Chandisherry Foundation, Mary and Bud Weingarden, Jennifer and Sean White and Teppermans. Thanks are also extended to Education Sponsors Bill & Rochelle Tepperman and for the 75th Anniversary, the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund.

Kenneth Saltmarche: Dedicated Visions
November 30, 2018 – May 12, 2019

In celebrating 75 years of the Art Gallery of Windsor’s history, it is important to pay tribute to Kenneth Saltmarche. Over the course of a nearly forty-year career which focused on building a community presence for a public art gallery in Windsor, Saltmarche demonstrated a sustained commitment to a professional vision which informed the growth of the AGW and its collection. Kenneth Saltmarche: Dedicated Visions reveals that he also maintained a personal aesthetic vision evident in his active pursuit of a visual art practice. This exhibition presents a range of Saltmarche’s art which demonstrates his interest in exploring several art genres over the duration of his artistic practice. Landscape, still life, official portraits as well as informal portraits of family members and acquaintances were also subjects which Saltmarche rendered in oil, watercolour and ink mediums. His artistic choices were carefully considered and presented in an engaging range of stylistic approaches developed as a means for communicating an intimate expression of a particular moment. All exhibited works are drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of Windsor.
