Exhibition: Stephen Bulger Gallery - Canadian Modernism - A Group Exhibition Featuring John Vanderpant & Contemporaries

TORONTO, June 19, 2015 /CNW/ -

Exhibition dates: June 26September 12, 2015
Reception: June 25, 5pm-8pm

This exhibition displays vintage prints made by Canadian photographers in the early and mid 20th century, a time when photography was mostly relegated to international salon exhibitions and prize medals were compensation for the lack of a market.  In the early part of the medium's history, photographers mimicked conventions in painting to promote acceptance of photography as a "true art". By the outbreak of WWI, Americans, such as Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz, spearheaded a movement towards straight photography, but pictorial traditions remained influential in photographic circles through the 1950s.     

This exhibition includes photographs made by these Canadian photographers:

Jessie Tarbox Beals; Jack Bunting; E. Haanel Cassidy; Otto Eaton; Rex Frost; Johan Helders; E.J. Hessin;  J.H. Mackay; Allan Sangster; William Gordon Shields; Harry Waddle; Charles Devenish Woodley; and  John Vanderpant
