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.

If It Weren’t for the War – which brings together Allan Harding MacKay and Dick Averns (contemporary official war artists), Tim Whiten (a Vietnam Veteran) and Tina Poplawski (whose family was interned in Siberian gulags during the Second World War, suffering post traumatic stress that was visited upon subsequent generations in her family).  Each of these artists will draw upon their personal experiences  to create work responding to the theme.

The Art of Private Jukes

While overseas during the Great War, many soldiers documented their experiences in journals, letters home and in drawings.  Private Jukes was one such young man.  During his time of service he created hundreds of drawings, watercolours and pen and ink sketches depicting not only battle scenes and their aftermath but also moments of pastoral beauty that could still be found in the French countryside.
