From Artists and Collectors: Recent Gifts
October 23–December 1, 2012
University of Toronto Art Centre
UTAC’s collections are built on the generosity of artists and collectors. In turn UTAC is delighted to share these works with the public. Heather Pigat, curator of this exhibition, has included works by John Hartman, William Kurelek, Kenneth Lochhead, Rob MacInnis, Gord Peteran, Vincenzo Pietropaolo, Phil Richards, Max Streicher and Rembrandt van Rijn.
The twenty-two works in this exhibition were selected from the nearly two hundred works donated to the University of Toronto Art Collection and the University College Collection since 2009. These works highlight the variety of media, format and subject matter that comprise the Collections and are tangible evidence of the thoughtful generosity of our many donors. Not only do these works enrich the Collections for the benefit of future generations, they provide an opportunity for scholarship by our current students.
We gratefully acknowledg the support of the University College Bartley Bull Fund and Manulife Financial.
