This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

The Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown will present two series of ArtTalks this November. The short, noon-hour talks have various gallery staff members providing presentations on their role at the gallery, a current research project, or a work of art in the RE:collection exhibition. Three evening talks by Art historian, Ron Hawker will delve into Canadian art history.

Hawker’s series, Understanding Canadian Art, will be presented on November 2, 16, and 30 at 7 pm and cover the following themes: From Colony to Confederation; Confederation to World War II; Modern to Post-Modern.

Dr. Hawker relocated to Prince Edward Island in 2016. He has taught at the Alberta College of Art and Design, the University of British Columbia, Emily Carr University of Art and Design, the American University of Sharjah, and Zayed University in Dubai. He is the author of Tales of Ghosts: First Nations Art in British Columbia, 1922-1961 (2002), Traditional Architecture in the Arabian Gulf: Building on Desert Tides (2008), and Yakuglas’ Legacy: The Art and Times of Charlie James (2016).
