A multi-artist, two city painting exhibition that looks back at the year 1917: 50 years removed from Confederation and 50 years before the glorious summer of ’67 in Montreal, 1917 was the year of the crucible. It was a coming of age story.
Curated by brothers Dave and Ross Rheaume, artists from Ottawa and Toronto will tell the story of milestones in history, medicine, art/science and sports, arts and entertainment.
It was to be one of the most difficult and challenging years in Canada’s then young history. On the battlefields of Europe Canadians perished by the thousands while at home unrest and riots over conscription broke out. In Halifax one of the greatest maritime disasters destroyed most of the city. Women fought for the vote. The legendary Tom Thomson passed away under mysterious circumstances and the NHL was born. 50 years removed from Confederation and 50 years before the glorious summer of ’67 in Montreal, 1917 was the year of the crucible. It was a coming of age story.
