Alex Colville – Canadian Icon (1920 – 2013)

The first ever ‘art’ I bought (if you can call it art) was a ‘poster’ of Alex Colville’s iconic image; To Prince Edward Island. This same image, is used today to promote a retrospective of his work at the AGO – Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.

If you are a fan of Colville’s quiet and masterful interpretation of every day Canadian life and his ability to take you from a mundane or serene moment to the edge between calm and threat – don’t miss this exhibit. It is at the AGO till January 4th 2015.

There are more than 100 works, including sketches and videos, marking the largest exhibition of the late artist’s work to date.
