Location

Agnes Jamieson Gallery 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario

A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA), OCAD alumna Mary Anne Barkhouse is a recognized Canadian artist who lives in Haliburton County. This installation is a stunning display of Barkhouse's belief and understanding of nature juxtaposed into our domestic surroundings. She describes the work as follows: I will be doing sculptural works that combine the ideas of both baroque and boreal to look at issues of survival and sovereignty in a northern climate...so I am using animals that have developed specific survival strategies for living in this delightful climate that we have and then putting them in a baroque living room setting...
A partnered exhibition with the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa; Art Gallery of Sudbury; Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, Waterloo; Thames Art Gallery, Chatham. Sponsored by the Ontario Arts Council
