New PAMA Exhibition Allows Visitors To Explore Canada Through Art
One of Ontario's rediscovered painters from the Group of Seven will kick off his retrospective cross-Canada exhibition tour at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) this month in downtown Brampton.
For those who are unaware, PAMA is a place to explore and learn about Peel Region's culture and heritage, as well as use conversation, questions and stories to help make new connections with the surrounding community.
Throughout the year, PAMA is offering a variety of workshops and programs for all ages, families and adults. With a variety of programs and exhibits to choose from, PAMA has something for everyone.
George Paginton: Painting a Nation, will showcase works of art by George Paginton, a Canadian painter known for landscapes that documented nature across the nation in over 1,500 oil paintings spanning over 70 years.
"The opportunity to create new Canadian art history is thrilling," said Darrin Martens, PAMA senior curator of art.
The show will run from October 10, 2019 until February 9, 2020 and will feature interactive programming and a hard cover publication about Paginton, which will be available for purchase in the PAMA store for $40.00.
"Paginton pursued his private passion of capturing the essence of the Canadian landscape with a sense of purpose," added co-curator, Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.
Operated by the Region of Peel, PAMA is located at 9 Wellington Street, East in Brampton.
