The Riverbrink Art Museum, located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, is opening two new exhibitions for public viewing. With thirty years of curating unique exhibitions, their unique collections are supported by the Weir Foundation and serve local, regional, provincial and federal constituencies.
The first of the two exhibitions is “Norval Morrisseau: Journey with a Genius.” This collection is on loan and charts the growth of Morrisseau’s private collection. The works include art and stories about the life of this innovative artist and the progression of the body of work.
The second exhibition is “A Private Collection of Inuit Sculpture.” Curated by Riverbrink’s Assistant Curator, Debra Antoncic, this collection includes more than seventy pieces of Inuit art. Included are soapstone, argillite, serpentine, whale bone and ivory. The collection has a particular focus on Cape Dorset artists, with pieces by European, Canadian and Inuit artists.
Riverbrink is located on the Niagara Parkway in the heart of Queenston, amongst Niagara’s most historic locations. The gallery is home to numerous exhibitions and sees annual, sometimes more frequent, transitions in gallery pieces. You can visit them online at www.riverbrink.org.
