Recommended Posts

I just saw this advertisement on the official City of Toronto website about a soon to close Saturday September 23, 2018 circulating exhibit featuring three Canadian women who painted, sculpted or photographed the war.  Note that if you are in Toronto during this upcoming weekend of Saturday September 23 - Sunday September 24, 2018 that some Canadian WW1 reenactors will be putting on at the same venue, Fort York National Historic Site in downtown Toronto, Ontario WWI activities.

Parallels: Women Representing the Great War in Canada and Newfoundland

Though they faced many challenges, female artists in Canada and Newfoundland contributed unique representations of the Great War and its effects on Canadian Society. Presented by the Canadian Centre for the Great War, Parallels explores the wartime and post war contributions of landscape artist Mary Riter Hamilton, sculptor Frances Loring, and portrait photographer Elsie Holloway. This travelling exhibition will culminate with Canada's Hundred Days: A Great War Living History Weekend, September 22 & 23 at Fort York.
