Join Darryn Doull for a special Curatorial Tour of Kathleen Daly: Northern Exposures.

Northern Exposures focuses on a series of sketches and paintings by Kathleen Frances Daly Pepper (b. Napanee, Ontario, 1898, d. Toronto, Ontario, 1994). They are a result from three trips in her lifetime. The first, in 1954, was spent on a trawler around the coasts of Newfoundland. In 1960, Daly boarded a government steam ship for three months voyaging through the Eastern Arctic. Finally, in 1961, Daly spent seven weeks in the home of an Inuit family, while she depicted the Inuit of Puvirnituq and the District of Ungava. Her representations of the North will be on view alongside Billy Gauther: Sila, offering a constrast in the shifting views, understanding, and relations of these lands over the last century. This curatorial tour will discuss the inspiration behind Daly's work and more of her history as an artist.
