Shaped and inspired by McCrae’s creative expressions, Witnessing War features drawing, paintings and sculptures by local and national artists, spanning 100 years of art as a salve to war.
The exhibition includes art works made in response to the six global conflicts in which Canada has fought:
South African War (1899 – 1902)
First World War(1914 – 1918)
Second World War (1939 – 1945)
Korean War (1950-1953)
Persian Gulf War (1990 -1991)
Afghanistan War (2001 – 2014).
Witnessing War also considers responsive works by artists with connections to Guelph and the surrounding region, who explore themes of human conflict in their art.
Visit The Guelph Civic Arts Museum now until December 4th to view this exhibit.
