York Wilson – A Selection of Works from the Permanent Collection of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery

February 23 - April 10, 2017

Following the success of its outreach programming last year, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery has organized a new travelling exhibition currently on view at the Yellow Box Gallery at St. Thomas University.  The exhibition features the work of celebrated Canadian artist Ronald York Wilson (1907-1984).  Recently, the Gallery has made a substantial addition of York Wilson’s work to its collection. In December 2016, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery received a substantial gift from the York Wilson Foundation for the Visual Arts consisting of more than 850 individual works of art by York Wilson, financial support, and a digital archive of Wilson’s life and work. In celebration of this gift, we present these exemplary works by the artist.
