(WINDSOR, ON) – This Saturday, the Art Gallery of Windsor opens its doors for the 1920s Modernism in Monteal: The Beaver Hall Group exhibition. Visitors will step back in time to an era when Canadian artistic expression was redefined.
Over 20 artists comprised the Beaver Hall Group including luminaries such as AY Jackson, Prudence Heward, and Mabel May. The group’s 13 year period sparked criticism, controversy, and commendations.
“They made an important contribution to modernist art in this country,” said Brian Foss, a Canadian art specialist and professor of art history at Carleton University.
The exhibition will be available for viewing at the Art Gallery of Windsor from June 25 to October 2. Admission for gallery members and children under 5 is free and $10 for non-members.
