The Burlington Art Centre joins the Group of Seven with an exhibition based on landscape, "Durham's Reach." The exhibition, which draws on works by local artists such as John D'Arcy, David Hockney, and David Guggenheim, looks at the artists who have created images of the deserted landscapes of our north. Durham Reach is based on the idea of bringing together local artists under one roof, which enables creativity, understanding, cohesion and removes obstacles that can disrupt the full enjoyment of a good painting. The exhibition juxtaposes examples of stage design in the theatre with those from the Hart House Permanent Collection and provides an insight into how work on stage and in the studio can inform each other.
Since Durham's artists have reached Lake Ontario, Lake Superior State University, the University of Waterloo and Lake Huron College, no networks or meetings are necessary.
