From the earliest cave paintings to the modern digital and conceptual era, artists have always delighted in depicting people and their daily activities. Glimpses of how life was and is lived are revealed by the figural paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, and family albums in our museums and homes.
As people uniquely different, yet profoundly the same, this exhibit will engage us in that age-old exploration of “who am I? and “What does it mean to be human?” Held in the historic 95-year-old Parish Hall in Norval, 120 pieces of photography and art by 40 photographers and artists will be on view May 5 – 29 as part of the Scotiabank’s 26th annual CONTACT Festival.
Open Thursdays – Sundays and holiday Monday, noon to 4:30 pm, with events every weekend, including the Opening Reception, Saturday, May 14, 1:00 – 4:00 pm with special speakers and ‘behind the scenes’ displays of historic photographers, Lucy Maud Montgomery and Yousuf Karsh. Curation by aforementioned Judy Daly and Sherry Prenevost, Photographer and Consultant from Mississauga.
