Art Exhibition 'In the Beginning, 1942'

Thursday, March 23, 2017
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
McIntosh Gallery (MG)

This year, McIntosh Gallery celebrates its 75th anniversary as the oldest university art gallery in Ontario. In 1942 the opening exhibition presented thirty paintings commissioned by the Canadian War Memorials Fund during the First World War as a unique record of Canadian achievements and war heroes. In the Beginning, 1942 reunites these paintings, now housed at the Canadian War Museum, for the first time in 75 years. Works by future Group of Seven artists A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, and Frederick Varley will join those of fellow Canadians Maurice Galbraith Cullen and John William Beatty, British artist Algernon Mayow Talmage, and Australian James Peter Quinn. The remaining twenty-three images will be represented digitally.

The gallery is open Monday to Friday 10AM-5PM and Saturday 12PM-4PM 

McIntosh Gallery gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the Canadian War Museum in loaning 27 key works to both exhibitions.
