Breakthrough exhibition brings together iconic Canadian paintings by Kreighoff, Carr and Group of Seven artists with famous works from U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean and South America
TORONTO—This summer the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) invites visitors to make a 15,000-kilometre artistic journey from Canada’s North to the southern tip of Argentina and Chile through the work of some of the world’s most acclaimed landscape painters. More than just scenic vistas, these paintings represent efforts by artists and explorers throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries to capture and define the essence of a place, its politics, myths and culture on canvas. The first exhibition of its kind to consider Canadian landscape in the broader context of the hemisphere, Landscape Painting in the Americas (working title) begins its journey in Toronto on, less than one month before the city welcomes the Toronto 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am Games.
Developed jointly in an innovative partnership between the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and the Art Gallery of Ontario, this exhibition brings together over 80 works of art from private collections and museums across North and South America as well as the Caribbean, to present the first ever pan-American landscape exhibition. Thematically organized, the exhibition places special emphasis on the art of Argentina and the Rio de la Plata region; the Andean region, including Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Venezuela; Brazil, Mexico, the United States and Canada, where landscape painting expressions were most prominent.

Artist & Poet Meena Chopra
Last Saturday, I visited the Sampradaya Dance Creations in Mississauga to see Meena Chopra’s exhibition The Radiance of Culture Days – Art & Poetry Show by Meena Chopra.
Painting from the series
Meena exhibited her recent works – a series of nudes that are at once languid and taut, depicting female energy.
For Meena, this series of figurative paintings is a return to roots. Along with the paintings, she had also displayed some of her recent poems.
“My objective is to show the energy that emanates from women. It’s raw, carnal, forceful, untameable, and even unfathomable.
After doing abstract work for some time, I was keen to return to figurative work,” Meena says, explaining her motivation to do the series of nudes.
“Through my art I endeavour to search the co-existing universal duality. I try to find the totality in the influx of paradoxes in an effort to unlock the mysteries of life. I search the elusive reality of human consciousness through the lines, splashes of colours and the impressions of brush strokes on my canvasses and at times through pen and paper in the form verses,” she adds.
Meena thanked Culture Days-Fête de la culture, Mississauga Arts Council, Sampradaya Dance Creations, and the culture division of City of Mississauga - Municipal Government for giving her the opportunity to showcase her work."
