Convenors: Ruthia Pak Regis and Anja Karisik
As an organization for women in the arts, the Heliconian Club is pleased to present a tribute exhibition honouring the women of the Beaver Hall Group (1920-23). Shadowed by the ubiquitous Group of Seven, these women painters have been overlooked in Canadian art history. In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in the Beaver Hall Group and its context.
Our Salon celebrates the friendship and support fostered among the women members of the Beaver Hall Group, and pays homage to the modernism advanced by the group. We have focused on still life, urban or rural scenes and figurative work in a variety of media to highlight our own group's diversity and our desire to promote a broader vision of art, while remembering the women of Beaver Hall who achieved this nearly a century ago.
Join us on the evening of Tuesday, March 21st at Heliconian Hall as we host speaker Brian Foss who will discuss why the Beaver Hall Group existed, who its members were, and what its art looked like and why. Mr. Foss is Director of the School for Studies in Art and Culture and Professor of Art History at Carlton University. He was co-curator of the exhibition 1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group.
