Look Again! The AGW Collection at 75 Years

November 30, 2018 (ongoing)

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 Tepperman's. Thanks are also extended to Education Sponsors Bill & Rochelle Tepperman and Sharon Cassey, and for the 75th Anniversary, the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund.
