Woodlands Style of Art is a genre of painting among Anishanabe and other First Nations artists that depict stories of mankind, spirits, animals and plants. Enriched with thick bold colourful lines, it is often referred to as medicine or legend painting. Artists’ works such as Norval Morisseau, Roy Thomas and Daphne Odjig will be shown as selected works.

In English. Drop-in activity. No advance registration required. Space is limited. Included with admission to the Gallery.

The visit will be preceded by a talk by Mskwaankwad Rice on his efforts to revitalize his traditional language of Anishinaabemowin through music, art and over the airwaves.
