Elizabeth Barrett-Milner: rare

March 10 – May 27, 2017

Guest curator: Phil Ross

“A disappointing sadness led to a small sketch entitled, A passenger pigeon once paused to eat a berry on Christmas Day. A simple drawing of a living bird. And so I began the paintings with stories of the rare, endangered and extinct.” In her 2017 exhibition, rare, Elizabeth Barrett-Milner opens our eyes to a global predicament felt uniquely at a local level, of disappearing and endangered species. These paintings testify to Elizabeth Barrett-Milner’s active involvement in observing and celebrating the natural history of her beloved Norfolk County; and further to the increasing number of endangered species of birds, mammals, reptiles, flora and fauna ultimately facing the threat of extinction. In her colourful folkloric paintings, the artist shares stories, myths and legends which capture her imagination and serve as subtle environmental warnings.

Off Course: Norfolk High School Senior Visual Art Exhibition recognizes the exceptional talents of high school art students from the senior high school art programs in Norfolk County. The participating schools were invited to be part of the exhibition based on their commitment to art education demonstrated by the quality of work that comes from their art programs. Art teachers from the participating high schools select artwork in various media from the senior art classes to be included in this group exhibition. The result is a fresh exhibition that highlights the talents of these aspiring young artists.
