An 1833 set of 9 original and fascinating studies of Niagara Falls is one of the centre pieces of TAG Art Gallery's widely-recognized Collection of Historical Prints of Niagara, on display at the Gallery until October 20th, 2018. The mixed-media works were done by Maj. Charles F. Gibson, a junior officer in the British army at the time. Gallery visitors will also be drawn to a 13-print display tracing the first 100 years of the evolution of illustrations of Niagara Falls, starting with Father Louis Hennepin in 1698. Significant works include the third-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 Fuessli. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore your Niagara History!! TAG Art Gallery welcomes you from Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
