McIntosh Gallery & Art Now! Present: Thelma Rosner
Thursday, March 10 at 7PM in MC 105B

Join us for an artist talk by Thelma Rosner on Thursday, March 10 at 7PM at MC-105B. This Art Now talk is presented in partnership with the McIntosh Gallery, and is open to Western students, faculty and staff. Attendees must follow all COVID-19 safety policies and provide their WesternONE card upon entry. This event will be recorded and made available to those unable to attend in person after the event.

Thelma Rosner is an artist whose practice includes painting, printmaking and installation. In the 1970s, she was a part time student in the ‘Fine Art’ department at Western, where she was mentored by Paterson Ewen. Books have often been the stimulus for her ideas as an artist. The subjects of her work include food and culture, and the intersections of Jewish and Muslim history. More recently, her work is inspired by the personal narratives of immigrants and refugees to Canada. Perhaps this interest is a reflection of the stories told to her by her own immigrant parents and family.

She has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and the Banff Centre for the Arts. Her work is included in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank and many public and private collections. She has exhibited her work in Canada, the US and England.

Thelma Rosner's solo exhibtiion Where Can I Go Now? runs from March 3 to April 16 at McIntosh Gallery. For more information about visitor access and hours of operation, click here.
