Homer Watson’s Works on Paper
September 12 – November 2, 2020
This year, for the 30th annual Homer Watson Exhibition, we are pleased to present Beyond Paint: Homer Watson’s Works on Paper. Although commonly known as a landscape painter, Watson created a range of works on paper, from his early sketches to his later experimental etchings. Growing up in rural Ontario, Watson had limited exposure to the classical techniques and painting styles of Europe. As a result, many of his works on paper were inspired by the local landscape. Deeply connected to nature, he explored the philosophical and delicate relationship humans have with the natural world. These works on paper played an important role in Watson’s development as an artist. Including several pieces that have never been displayed before, the exhibit sheds a new perspective on Watson’s works. We look forward to sharing this exhibition with you in September!
