Westerkirk Works of Art is pleased to invite the public to attend the closing event on November 10, 2010 for Copper Thunderbird: The Art of Norval Morrisseau.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-964-4525 ext. 4126.
If in the future, a single artist will represent a time, a people, and an artistic movement, it will be Norval Morrisseau, Copper Thunderbird. Just as the Group of Seven exemplifies a time and spirit of Canada in the early 20th century, native art – and particularly the Woodland School – will stand for the late 20th and early 21st century.
The Copper Thunderbird exhibition at Elmwood Spa supports the YWCA Elm Centre, which will provide 300 new affordable and supportive homes for single women, women-led families and Aboriginal families in 2011. Financial and philosophical support of this project is of critical importance and will have a significant impact on the lives and futures of those who will make their homes at the YWCA Elm Centre.
