WINNIPEG -- One hundred works valued at approximately $4 million in total will be on exhibit at Mayberry Fine Art for its annual holiday exhibition and sale entitled Seasons.
Featured are historical pieces from the 19th and early 20th Centuries including a rare Frances Anne Hopkins watercolour and several Group of Seven works, paintings by Canada’s mid-century modernists, as well as artworks by this country’s finest contemporary artists.
The gala, public opening takes place Sunday, Dec. 9 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Mayberry’s Exchange District gallery at 212 McDermot Ave. with several of the contemporary artists on hand to chat with gallery visitors.
The exhibition continues to Dec. 24. As always, there is no admission to view artwork on display at Mayberry Fine Art.
Seasons highlights include:
Frances Ann Hopkins watercolour circa 1864 which Mayberry acquired from an antique book dealer in South Africa. After holding it in storage for decades, he sold it to the Mayberrys rather than to an international art auction house in London. Most Hopkins paintings are in museums, archives and public galleries. Very few have ever been available to private collectors. The work is priced at $65,000
A 1957 Jean-Paul Riopelle oil valued at more than $500,000
Group of Seven works by A.Y. Jackson, A.J. Casson, Arthur Lismer, Lawren Harris
Paintings by famed Canadian artists Guido Molinari, David Milne, Marcel Ferron and Jean Paul Lemieux
Three William Kurelek paintings including a large-scale 40” x 42”work valued at $160,000
Maud Lewis “Oxen” priced at $24,000
Six Randolf Parker watercolour sketches from his Lake of the Woods “Islands” series -- priced from $900 to $1350 each -- offer a sneak preview to the eventual 50 sketches and 50 paintings he will produce for the monumental series.
Twenty-plus contemporary Canadian artists are featured including works by local artists Andrew Valko, Peter McConville and Don Proch among others.
