My Daily Art
With the WAG is closed to the public, it’s possible that the largest retrospective of Manitoba’s Group of Seven member will be the first show in the Gallery’s 108-year history to open and close without an audience.
The WAG has the largest collection of FitzGerald’s work, but for my post today, I wanted to share one of my favourites from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, our exhibition partner. It’s another window view, but with “The Little Plant” (1957, Gift of R. A. Laidlaw), we pause before adjusting our focus outside.
The diminutive geranium plant holds its own on the window sill against a brownish grey backdrop of leafless tree limbs and dead grass – striking a balance between life and new life to come.
While the WAG is temporarily closed, this series of posts from Director & CEO, Dr. Stephen Borys, shares an artwork from the collection every day until the Gallery reopens. Follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, or visit our stories section for this and more WAG@Home content.
