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

The Exhibition was feattured on Cogeco’s ‘The Source’. Click here to view the broadcast.
 
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.

Historical Prints of Niagara

Every year at TAG Art Gallery, we celebrate the history of Niagara by putting our entire collection of historical art on display. Why? Well our ancestors came to Niagara as U.E. Loyalists, as canal builders, as founders of the town of Port Robinson, and as children of a Civil War veteran. So, Niagara is in our blood. And, nothing energizes us more than to share Niagara’s history as presented through the world of art. Accordingly, we invite to view our extensive collection of historical prints, watercolours and pencil drawings – especially our latest additions from the world-renowned Winkworth collection.
Come and see through the eyes of the artists as they experience and share with the world the power and attraction of Niagara Falls, and Niagara’s military and economic histories.
Please join us at 214 King St., St. Catharines, August 19th to October 3rd and celebrate your history! We are open Wednesday – Saturday, noon – 6 pm.
Cheers,
Tom & Frank Goldspink
