BAG  Canadian Mosaic

In recognition of Canada’s Sesquicentennial, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery presents a series of exhibitions from its collections tracing the development of Canadian Art.

Five galleries will be dedicated to exploring Canada 150 – Canada’s sesquicentennial celebration – through thematic presentations of historical, modern and contemporary art, including a focus presentation highlighting the art of Atlantic Canada.

Through its nearly six decades of history, the Gallery has amassed a fine overview of the principal artists associated with our nation. Canadian Mosaic: Celebrating 150 years of art from the Permanent Collection will showcase some of the most beloved works in the collection by notable historical figures such as Paul Kane, Cornelius Krieghoff, Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris, Emily Carr, J. W. Morrice, John Hammond, Arthur Lismer, and Henrietta Mabel May.

As one particularly fitting inclusion, the Gallery will unveil a recently-donated 19th Century sculptural portrait of Sir George-Étienne Cartier, co-premier of the Province of Canada and Father of Confederation.
