bertuzzoM-1accident-prone

The subject of violence against women is certainly uncomfortable and not one I would choose to spend any time thinking about. I certainly did not think much of Marco Bertuzzo’s work, “Accident Prone” when I first looked at it. This is not a comment on the artist or piece itself. This is an admission of my personal unwillingness to give the piece a moment to penetrate. As a woman, mother and wife I do recognize the importance of security in my life.

Historical Prints of Niagara, Jun. 29th to Aug. 27th

tabs_current_HistPr_summer 16

Welcome to our Historical Prints of Niagara Exhibition at TAG Art Gallery.

 
Niagara's military history is at the forefront once again, with 2016 being the 150th anniversary of the successful defence of Canada during the Fenian Raids.  TAG Art Gallery's current exhibition of Historic Prints of Niagara includes this watercolour (done at the time by a Fenian sympathizer) of troops  arriving at Port Dalhousie, on their way to fight the invaders in south Niagara.  The exhibition also features key events of the Rebellion of 1837 in Upper Canada, and of the War of 1812, including the Battle of Lake Erie, and the Battle of Queenston Heights; and original views of Fort George and Fort Niagara.
 
And Gallery visitors will be drawn by a 12-print display tracing the first hundred years of the evolution of illustrations of Niagara Falls, starting with Father Louis Hennepin in 1698.  Significant works include the second-ever engraving (c. 1700) of Niagara Falls, after the artist Sebastian Le Clerc; and an unusual hand-watercoloured version of a 1776 drawing by Swiss-born, English artist Henry Fuseli.
 
Besides celebrating the natural wonders of 'The Falls', our diverse collection pictures the development of transportation, tourism, manufacturing, power-generation, and agriculture; and the vibrancy of growing communities. See the day-to-day life at busy Queenston Landing, and along the banks of the Welland Canal when it wound through St. Catharines and on to Port Dalhousie.
 
This is a wonderful opportunity to explore your Niagara History!!  TAG Art Gallery welcomes you from Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 6 p.m., June 29th to August 27th, 2016.
 
During the Historical Prints Exhibition, please visit our website to view our complete selection of Contemporary Art.
