    The Club welcomes special guest Sarah Milroy, Chief Curator at The McMichael Gallery and Member of the Order of Canada, to speak about the life and work of Canadian artist Claire Wilks on June 2, 2022.  This link is for the digital video of the Salon will be available online a week later and available for 8 days.  For information on the live event, please click HERE.

    Claire Wilks (AKA Weissman Wilks, 1933-2017) was a Canadian artist who “was able to convey the human emotional experience from love and compassion to loneliness and pain. She was also known for portraying the eroticism of the human body – male and female.”  - the Canadian Jewish News.

    Her works impose themselves on the eye of the beholder through the force of her autonomous line…” - Il Gazzettino di Venetzia.

    This event is linked to our Salon Exhibition, THE GENIUS OF CLAIRE WILKS, which runs June 2 to June 29, 2022.

    This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see works by Claire Wilks, on loan from the collection of Claire’s partner, author Barry Callaghan. The exhibition is curated by Christian Bernard Singer, Curator, Eco-artist and educator, and author of the comprehensive exhibition catalogue.

    The exhibit will also be open free to the public from 1 to 4 pm on the following days: Tuesday June 7, 21, 28; Wednesday June 29; Thursday June 16, 23; Friday June 10; Saturday June 11, 18, 25.
