Selections for Glenhyrst’s Permanent Collection

May 27th to July 23, 2017

Casson

The Glenhyrst’s permanent collection exhibition highlights the special contributions made by local, regional, national, and indigenous artists from Canada. With the formation of the gallery in 1956, a strong collection of historical, modern, and contemporary artworks were brought together and continue to grow.

Today, Glenhyrst’s impressive permanent collection includes over 600 artworks from Canadian, indigenous, and international artists. This exhibition provides an opportunity to showcase some of the collection’s most exceptional works. From the historical landscapes and portraits of Robert Reginald Whale, the bold abstracts of Hortense Gordon, and the dynamic Woodland paintings of Blake Debassige, these artworks come to locate and define our identities, histories, and communities.
