SATURDAY, JUNE 18th @ 2pm

Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present exhibition curator Stephen Smart discussing the later works of painter Ray Mead (1921 – 98). A member of the Painters 11, Mead’s work came to prominence on the national scene in the 50s and 60s, however as Smart contends, the works of his last decade are a testament to a growing maturity in the artist’s work.

While a partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt, Stephen Smart amassed and curated one of the finest corporate collections in Canada. In addition to curating, he has served as director on the advisory board for art institutions, such as Visual Arts Ontario, Gershon Iskowitz Foundation, Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art and the Doris McCarthy Gallery. He also served as a member of the acquisition committee for the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Please RSVP as space is limited.
