Our Third Online Exhibit
Although the VIA train station is closed due to COVID-19, we have assembled our third virtual gallery showcasing the paintings of Rosemary Sloot in “Rosemary – Memories of a Dutch Family’s Immigration to Canada” Also, you can go to our Youtube Channel and see all 6 interviews of Rosemary Sloot.
See the article in the St. Marys Independent
Visitors to the Virtual Gallery will discover that the ‘Immigrant’ collection is a deeply personal homage to Sloot’s parents that deftly captures “the inescapable burden of the immigrant, forever to be pulled between two worlds.” It’s also a collection that represents an important seven-year creative journey for the artist, one that began when she learned that her dying mother’s one regret was leaving the Netherlands. Devastated by this revelation, Sloot began painting what would become her most successful collection to gain a deeper understanding of the sacrifice her parents had made.
We still have available our first and second online exhibits that can be found under the Exhibitions menu above. We hope you enjoy our efforts in keeping exhibits available.
Thank you to our 2020 sponsors!
Gallery is closed until further notice.
