1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group

October 22, 2016 - January 29, 2017

The Beaver Hall Group are inextricably linked with the history of art in Montreal, Quebec and Canada. Initially considered to be a Montreal counterpart to Toronto's Group of Seven, the group stood apart through their work: rather than offering an image of Canadian identity through depictions of the untamed landscapes of a northern country, the Montreal artists imbued the inhabited landscapes of a northern culture with the colours of modernity.

Rough Country:
The Strangely Familiar in mid-20th Century Alberta Art

Oct 22, 2016 - February 5, 2017

Evocative of the postwar social climate, the perspective of the five Alberta artists in this exhibition can be unsettling, sometimes uncanny or even downright disturbing. Maxwell Bates, Laura Evans Reid, John Snow, W.L. Stevenson and Dorothy Henzell Willis were all born before 1918, and their perspective of a young province and its people belies the myth of Alberta as a land of prosperity and simple beauty.

One New Work
M.N. Hutchinson: The Last Longest Day

October 22, 2016 - February 26, 2017

The third and final installment of the One New Work series focuses on senior Calgary artist M.N. Hutchinson and a project which began in 1999 with Hutchinson taking one photograph every minute of the day on the longest day of the millennium. Selecting from more than 900 photos taken over 19 hours, the exhibition draws on film negatives, contact sheets and new photographic prints made with traditional darkroom methods to depict the adventures of a photographer exploring time and place.
