Last chance to experience Ken Danby: Five Decades

GUELPH, ON, January 11, 2017: Ken Danby: Five Decades, featuring artworks by one of Canada’s most highly acclaimed artists will close Sunday, January 15 at the Guelph Civic Museum.

The retrospective exhibition, guest curated by Judith Nasby, features Danby’s portraits, landscapes and Canadian imagery bringing to light “average, everyday moments”. Highlights include the first public showing of Danby’s mechanized easel and a display of studies for the Wayne Gretzky portrait, The Great Farewell.

Visitor response to Ken Danby: Five Decades has reaffirmed the respect and affection the Guelph community holds for the artist, and underscores the importance of his work, ten years after his death.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street. Admission is $5 per person.
