Paterson Ewen: Phenomena Paintings, 1971-1987
A nationally touring exhibition of the large, gouged-plywood paintings of Paterson Ewen. The exhibition presents several of Ewen’s best-known works – studies of landscape and the phenomena of weather – dating from the early 1970’s to the present. These monumental works are painterly evocations of light and space which, according to exhibition Curator Phillip Monk, “rival the mystic depictions of the storm tossed scenes of the Group of Seven”. Organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Ontario with the generous assistance of the Canada Council.
On view at Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery from 2 November to 13 December is the exhibition Paterson Ewen: The Montreal Years, a display of Ewen’s earlier works, organized by the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
