Monday Inspiration 2014

Monday Inspiration 2014 is all about re-discovering Canadian Artists. After completing a bachelor of fine art from a Canadian University you would think that you'd be well versed in Canadian art- but actually -not so much. Ask me about renaissance, or abstract expressionism, and I'm well versed, but beyond the Group of Seven or Emily Carr I'm a bit lost when it comes to my own countrymen- (let alone country women!).

So the idea here is to keep it up for a whole year (or more) and to educate myself about the great Canadian Paintings lurking out there. Even though there are lots of Contemporary (living) Canadian artists that are fantastic- I'm mostly interested in historical (not living) artists right now- just so that I can fill in some of the blanks in my Art History education. I'm really interested in folks that are under the radar- women or minorities, because usually they get lost in the history books, and so it's sort of like a lost history, or a treasure hunt. A lot of these artists are local heroes- but not really well known outside of their community. If you can think of someone I should look into please let me know.
