On view December 13 through December 23, 2014
TrépanierBaer is pleased to present five outstanding works by five of Canada’s leading artists. Spanning a period of almost 45 years, the exhibition features a magnificent Oscar Cahén drawing, ca. 1954; Marcel Barbeau’s optically exuberant Rétine – Les îles joyeuses, from 1965, the last from that series; IAIN BAXTER&’s iconic Mt. Rundle with Pink Sky – Banff, AB, 1965 from his famous vacuum-form series; Paterson Ewen’s intimately captivating Cosmic Compendium, 1998; and a set of two masterful, beautifully impulsive and expressive charcoal drawings by Jean Paul Riopelle from 1976.
