Close Encounters Talk Series 2015-16
Wed 14 Oct, 7pm: "Revivalism! Modern Printmaking in Europe". $12 members | $15 general public | $10 students.
Fri 19 Feb, 6-7:30pm: Margaret Priest: From Punctum to Passion, from Less is More to More is Better and Back Again in Drawing. Take a trip to the AGO's Prints and Drawings Centre to view From Punctum to Passion: From Less is More to More is Better and Back Again in Drawing. Through pencil dots, conté dashes, charcoal stumpings, wash scumbles, ink glyphs, hatchings, scratchings and erasures, Margaret Priest invites you to examine the rich materiality and the implied metaphysics found in a group of AGO drawings by artists whose work informed and inspired her own artistic practice. $12 members | $15 general public | $10 students.
Fri 8 Apr, 6-7:30pm: Maia-Mari Sutnik, Curator Emeritus, Photography, examines a group of compelling photographs by Diane Arbus (1923-1971) from the AGO's large holdings of the artist's work. Arbus's photographs have polarized debate since her landmark exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1972 – a year after her death. Her stark black and white images are unsettling and explore bizarre interior worlds. With compassion and respect, she portrays those who are marginalized by society – the odd, the eccentric, the shunned, and the isolated. $15 members | $17 general public | $10 students. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s - 1980s. http://bit.ly/1LBaLUD.
Fri 24 Jun, 6-7:30pm: Cynthia Burlingham on Lawren Harris. Join Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, Hammer Museum, for an intimate conversation about the drawings of Lawren Harris. $15 members | $17 general public | $10 students. Presented in anticipation of the exhibition The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris (Jul 1-Sep 18, 2016). http://bit.ly/1TmTNJw. *SOLD OUT.

first day
Historical Prints of Niagara. TAG Art Gallery's fine presentation of historical prints captures the essence of 19th-century Niagara. With the end of the War of 1812, economic development became the order of the day – driven by those with a long association with Niagara, and by newcomers attracted to the region's untapped potential. Workers (and their families) involved in building and operating new industry, business, and services rapidly swelled the population. The influx included the experienced observers who illustrated and published depictions of significant places, people, and events. See their first-hand impressions in the Gallery's informative and wide-ranging collection. A leisurely visit to this exhibition is an ideal way to experience Niagara's history. ... more
