One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903 - 1970) was famous in her lifetime for her brightly coloured and endearing paintings of rural Nova Scotia.
At its heart, the exhibition features Houle’s Sandy Bay Residential School Series, 2009, a suite of 24 oilstick drawings made by the artist as he recollected these childhood terrors.
Into the Light: Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald is a comprehensive examination of the accomplishments and legacy of the Winnipeg artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956), the last member to join the Group of Seven in 1932.
Among the great treasures of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection is a group of fifty-four jewel-like miniatures by the artist Clarence Gagnon.
In 2020, we will be celebrating the achievement of the Group of Seven on the centenary of their first exhibition with a special installation of work from our permanent collection.
