Starting where I left off yesterday in the OAG, a ring of Muskoka chairs complements the art.
Louis Muhlstock painted Morning Light Laurentian's Isola in 1955.
The city has a substantial collection of A.Y. Jackson paintings; Jackson of course was another member of the Group of Seven.
Fitzroy Harbour is the large painting at left. Two more of his paintings are at right. Near Perth dates to 1961, while Water's Edge, Duhamel, Quebec is from 1968.
Jackson's friendship with the Firestone family results in the large city collection of Jackson and other Group painters. The family's collection was given to the city. These are Jackson's snowshoes, along with one of his field art kits.
Illumination Series, Fortune is a 2021 work by Don Kwan.
Three photographs by Kwan are here, with his lantern motif.
This is an arrangement by Kwan, featuring classic Canadiana with Chinese yoke-back chairs. The chairs flank a handmade oak table and a painting of the Group. A.Y. Jackson painted Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park around 1963
Back outside, a view of the other primary entrance of the OAG.
And two shots of the old courthouse that is now home to Arts Court.
