For Remembrance Day, November 11th, 2018

This Remembrance Day, November 11th, 2018, marks the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice which took effect “at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. St. Catharines artist Francie McGlynn drew on her childhood experiences of growing up in Niagara to create this evocative and timeless view of solemn Merrittonians gathering at the town Cenotaph on Remembrance Day. Francie’s pastel work captures perfectly a local community’s feelings of loss and mourning for its Veterans, and also the sense of reverence and respect with which Canadians celebrate all who have served and sacrificed. Thank you, Francie, for this most fitting tribute.

This early and very rare 'birds-eye view' of Niagara Falls is a must-see at our 'Historical Prints of Niagara' Exhibition' which ends at 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 20th, 2018. Make your way to TAG Art Gallery soon to see this wonderful piece which is in a section of the Exhibition dedicated to marvelous views of The Falls and environs by European-trained master lithographers and artists who were inspired by the natural splendour of the scene, and were also meeting a booming demand in the mid-19th century for frameable prints of scenes of North America. In the European market, illustrations of Niagara Falls were extremely popular. (This 1851 'bird's-eye view' is one of the most famous of Niagara Falls, and is based on a painting by Swiss-born artist John Bachmann (1814-96). More rare and important prints and original works can be found throughout the Exhibition. Make a date now to see this educational and entertaining presentation of your Niagara history! Visit TAG Art Gallery, Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 6 p.m., until the end of October 20th, 2018.

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.
