This annual program commemorates Lynn Donoghue, who was a respected and critically acclaimed artist and portraitist. A member of the museum board, Ms. Donoghue was a strong supporter of the three historic houses – Colborne Lodge, Mackenzie House, and Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens. The Lynn Donoghue Artist in Residence Program continues the legacy initiated by John Howard of Colborne Lodge, founding member of the Society of Artists and Amateurs (1834); William Lyon Mackenzie’s printing endeavours; and the Austin women of Spadina through their patronage of the arts as members of The Women’s Art Association of Canada, Toronto.

Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens was built in 1866 and occupied by the Austin family until 1982. The house is set on six acres of beautifully landscaped grounds including rolling lawns, an intimate orchard and one of Toronto’s finest restored Victorian and Edwardian Gardens. The furniture, art and decoration are original to the house and reflect the Toronto art scene of the late 19th and early 20th century and its Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau influences.

The requirements, obligations and parameters of the program are outlined in detail in the Call for Submissions document. The Call for Submissions document may be requested by email to spadina@toronto.ca or by phone by calling Karen Edwards at 416-392-6910 x303.
