To Apr 25
Shuvinai Ashoona: Mapping Worlds. Ashoona’s large-scale drawings imagine the past and present fused into a prophetic future. Her vision includes human-animal hybrid creatures, women birthing worlds, and mystical or other-world-ly landscapes clearly inspired by the terrain of her northern home in Kinngait, Nunavut.

Opening May 15
Maud Lewis. One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903-1970) was famous in her lifetime for her brightly coloured and endearing paintings of rural Nova Scotia. Working from her cabin on the side of the highway in Marshalltown, she produced hundreds of small works that captured aspects of country life that were rapidly changing.
