Each day our eyes pass by hundreds of objects. Let your eye stop and rest on a folk object made with the colours, skills and artistry of an untrained eye. Let them enjoy seeing the skill of assembling everyday objects into artistry. Notice the found manufactured objects, produced for everyday use, yet designed or embellished in ways reflecting a finer art. Smile at something made for no apparent use or as deliberate folly. Enjoy the objects in this exhibition. Each one can teach you about the history of our local community and the history of the people of Canada.
Opening of the DCMA Fine Art Collection Exhibit – Betty Scale Hendrie
Born in Bushey Heath, London England in 1916, yet raised in India, Betty Scale Hendrie immigrated to Canada in 1943, a war bride. She was a member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolours and had a farm in Mono, where her studio was located. Her works are in private collections in the USA, Europe, Barbados, and Ireland and now we are honoured to have her works here at the DCMA, including her haunting scenes of the Hockley Valley.
