Although the Great War is often gendered male, the women who engaged with the war left an indelible impact on history. Soldiering through countless hardships, women artists in Canada and Newfoundland contributed unique representations of the Great War and its effects on society at a national scale.
Parallels, an exhibition at Ryerson’s MLC Gallery, pays tribute to a mighty triad of female artists. Among the items on public display are sculpting tools, publications and a dazzling silk scarve that has a war time story all its own.
This exhibition is open to the general public. All are welcome to come and explore the critical impact of these significant women artists on the narrative and visual culture of the Great War.
