Once Upon a Time, Deep in the Dark Forest

September 1, 2016 - April 17, 2017

“There is … something in the character of great forests which is foreign, appalling, and utterly inimical to intruding life.” Aldous Huxley

In the landscape art of the Group of Seven, the viewer has been conditioned to recognize the picturesque beauty of the Canadian forest. Fierce, strong, and often unspoiled, it reflected a sense of character for a developing nation. This exhibition, however, presents historical and contemporary art—including those of the Group and their associates—that suggests the forest is no symbol of glory; it is where beauty, mystery, fantasy, and darkness collide.

Curator: Sharona Adamowicz-Clements
