The Legacy Project: How Deep Our Roots

Curated by Virginia Eichhorn Director and Chief Curator, Robert Alton Exhibitions Coordinator, Heather Hughes, Assistant Curator and Trevor Pfeffer School Programs

This will be a Victory Garden project that profiles these gardens as public art environments.  We will be creating a walking tour with information about the public art projects and the Victory Gardens and we will be documenting and presenting the project on video/web-based platform.  For both aspects of these projects we will be doing outreach to senior homes and through organizations such as the Alzheimer Society, Grey Sauble Conservation Authority, the Artists’ Co-op and Community Living who are partnering with us on this project.

Bertha M. Ingle

Bertha was born in 1878 in Puslinch Township, and was christened Bertha May Ingle.

She grew up in Owen Sound, and lived most of her adult life in Toronto, where she died October 20, 1962 in Toronto. She left hundreds of paintings, drawings, and sketches created during a long and productive life.

Bertha M. Ingle loved to paint nature, and she loved being outdoors, often painting en plein air.

I want to express so much more than just the surface effects,
and they are difficult enough, you know. Can anything be
much more elusive than light and movement? But I love
them well enough I think never to grow tired of trying.
[1930, in a letter to a friend]
