Artists working in the Anishinabe and Woodlands style

April 29 – May 10, 2015

NAC THEATRE FOYER
53 Elgin Street, at Confederation Square
Ottawa Ontario

In the 1960s, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) became the first federal government institution to support the development of contemporary Canadian Aboriginal art. Significant acquisitions over its history have made AANDC’s Aboriginal Art Collection one of the most important and comprehensive collections of contemporary Canadian Aboriginal art in Canada and one that is particularly rich in artworks by Aboriginal artists from Ontario.

Part 1 of a two-part, collection-based exhibition will feature work by NORVAL MORRISSEAU, DAPHNE ODJIG, ROY THOMAS, and ARTHUR SHILLING.

Part 2 will feature work created more recently by RON NOGANOSH, GLENNA MATOUSH, MARIA HUPFIELD, and MICHAEL BELMORE. A third exhibition in the National Art Centre’s Theatre Lobby will feature artists working in the Anishinabe and Woodlands style.
