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.
