Thursday, October 20

Don't miss this exciting chance to see the Art Gallery of Ontario's new exhibition Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh and More

From the AGO's website:

"The years between 1880 and 1930 were marked by rampant materialism and rapid urbanization. Disillusioned with traditional religious institutions, many European, Scandinavian and North American artists searched for an unmediated spiritual path through mystical experiences. Organized in partnership with the renowned Musée d'Orsay in Paris, Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh and more breaks new art historical ground, exploring the mystical experiences of 36 artists from 15 countries, including Emily Carr, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Georgia O'Keeffe and James McNeill Whistler."

This trip will also feature an art talk that will give insight into the work of this exhibition.
