Beyond the Pines Homer Watson and the Contemporary Canadian Landscape
Catalogue Launch & Panel Discussion
Thursday, December 3rd
6:30 (Reception with light refreshments)
7- 9 pm (Panel Discussion)
The AGM celebrates the launch of the catalogue for our current exhibition Beyond the Pines: Homer Watson and the Contemporary Landscape with a panel discussion on the intersection of aesthetics, environmentalism, art history and politics in landscape. Join Curator Kendra Ainsworth, exhibiting artist Reinhard Reitzenstein, catalogue contribhutor Shannon Anderson, and Ivan Jurakic (Director | Curator of the University of Waterloo Art Gallery), in an engaging, cross-disciplinary discussion. Fourth panelist TBA.
Homer Watson is considered to be one of the founders of the Canadian landscape painting tradition. He aimed to give a ‘truthful representation’ of the Canadian wilderness in his work, as distinct from the more romanticized style found in depictions of the English and European countryside. Contemporary Canadian artists looking at landscape must also find a way to access the ‘truth’ of a subject that is not only strongly represented in our national artistic history, but one that is both deeply political and personal. Placing contemporary work by emerging and established artists alongside that of Watson illustrates the universality of the quest to appreciate and capture the landscape in which we live. Exhibiting artists include Jason Brown, Jennifer Carvalho, April Hickox, Brian Jungen and Duane Linklater, Gavin Lynch, Reinhard Reitzenstein, Monica Tap.
