Virgil Burnett


January 23 – April 10, 2011

Guest Curated by Cindy Hubert

The exhibition celebrates the significant contribution of this Stratford-based artist to the arts of illustration, drawing and sculpture, providing a rare opportunity to consider Burnett's work in these different media together and to view rarely-seen prints from the collection. Given the centrality of the human figure to the artists' oeuvre, the exhibition will be accompanied by an installation of life drawings by local artists who meet regularly at Burnett's home to draw the human form, including Susan Benson, Helen Edmonds, Glenn Elliott, Ellen Erenberg, Karen Fletcher, Susan Green, Judith Horner, Nicholas Rees and Isabella Stefanescu.
