'Celebrate The Seven' Shows Again


We are having a wonderful run with this show that started in the spring of 2014 !
It is now at; 
The Homer Watson House & Gallery, 
May 1-June 5, 2016, 
1754 Old Mill Rd., Kitchener, Ontario. 

 Homer Ransford Watson, painter (b. at Doon, Canada W, 14Jan1855; d., 30May1936). 
Virtually self-taught, Watson spent 1874-76 in Toronto working with John A. Fraser and Henri Perré and in New York absorbing the influence of George Inness and the Hudson River School. Later in Europe he met Sir George Clausen and Whistler, and admired Millet, the Barbizon painters and Constable. Internationally famous at the peak of his career, Watson developed a landscape style marked by honesty of purpose and a focus on the moods of nature. Many of his canvases depict the countryside around Kitchener, the trees, fields of grain, grazing cattle - the "Land of Thrift" much prized in pioneer society. 
He began exhibiting in 1878 but the purchase of his The Pioneer Mill for Queen Victoria at the first Royal Canadian Academy of 1880 brought early acclaim. Many significant canvases were completed by the end of the century: Cornfield (1883), The Flood Gate (1900) and After the Rain (1883). His patrons included Lord Strathcona, James Ross, Oscar Wilde and many affluent Canadians. He and Edmund MORRIS founded the Canadian Art Club in 1907 hoping to replace imported European with Canadian canvases. Watson was president of the Royal Canadian Academy, 1918-21.
