Victoria Women's Association Presents: Painted Out of the Picture: The Wives of the Group of Seven
Where: Alumni Hall
About this Event: While the husbands received acclaim for their contributions to Canadian art, the wives of the Group of Seven were largely overlooked. This talk, led by author/curator Angie Littlefield, sheds light on the significant roles these women played in shaping their husbands' careers while also emphasizing their agency in carving out meaning in their own lives.
About the Speaker: Author/Curator Angie Littlefield has authored three books about Tom Thomson. Her most recent work, Tom Thomson's Fine Kettle of Friends, was shortlisted for the Whistler Independent Book Award in 2021. Additionally, she has written articles and curated exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany, and the Lonsdale Gallery in Toronto.
