Immersive Landscape: A Canadian Year
Drawing from the University College and University of Toronto Art Collections, UTAC Director Niamh O’Laoghaire has selected 60 landscapes by a range of practitioners. There are works by Tom Thomson and members of the Group of Seven, Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald and Fred Varley along with their contemporaries Emily Carr, David Milne and Barker Fairley. The show extends back to paintings by Homer Watson, and forward to Gordon Rayner and Lorne Wagman, among others. The installation is structured to create an immersive narrative of seasonal evolution.
