KMHCF was thrilled to support two exciting exhibitions at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg this past spring.
Wolves: The Art of Dempsey Bob (December 10, 2022 – April 16, 2023) offered a personal encounter with the work of the leading carver of British Columbia’s Northwest Coast and an immersive experience of the Tahltan and Tlingit mainland cultures. This first-ever retrospective surveys Dempsey Bob’s development from his early days as a student of legendary female carver Freda Diesing through to his late career masterworks, which advance the traditions of carving in the 21st century.

Meryl McMaster: Bloodline (February 4 – May 28, 2023), presented by both the McMichael and Remai Modern, was a survey exhibition of a remarkable Canadian artist whose pioneering large-scale photographic works reflect her mixed Plains Cree/Métis, Dutch and British ancestry. This exhibition looks back to McMaster’s past accomplishments and brings us up to date on her current explorations of family histories, in particular those of her Plains Cree female forebears from the Red Pheasant Cree Nation in present-day Saskatchewan.
