I visited the Cape Dorset exhibition - Nunannguaq: In the Likeness of the Earth while the class toured the Group of Seven (I attended that exhibit recently).

We all enjoyed meeting with the artist Ed Bartram to hear about his printmaking – he’s a former printmaking teacher at the Art Centre at Central Technical School.

One of the prints from Ed Bartram: The Eye Within exhibition

Only one other living artist has been exhibited at the McMichael – also a CTS Art Centre teacher – Doris McCarthy -

Doris McCarthy: Medicine Lake, 2000, oil on canvas, 36" x 48"

Unrelated to the field trip or to the art history class – a good friend sent along the link to a video that features Vincent VanGogh paintings – there’s one typo near the end of the slide show but the overall effect is worth watching (4:44 minutes)
