Captured on Canvas: Exploring our past through the work of Clara Harris
Saturday, May 27 & Sunday, May 28, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
For the Doors Open weekend, original paintings by early twentieth-century artist Clara Harris (1887-1975) will be displayed in a two site pop-up exhibition at the Inn and Lambton House. These works by a local artist, who exhibited with the Group of Seven, demonstrate the great changes that have taken place in the local landscape, and how the arts have helped to tell the story of Canada's evolution. We encourage people to visit both parts of the exhibition, at the Inn and Lambton House, by using the number 30 bus that travels along Dundas Street West.
These exhibits are presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto's year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada's 150th birthday.
