“The First Time I Saw Her Work, 'Summer, Road Between Buckhorn and Bobcaygeon', I Cried.”

November 8, 2019

Jenn B. a high school visual arts teacher in London, Ontario contacted me recently:

 

I’m thrilled that you have a space dedicated to Clara Harris. I only discovered her when I saw her work at my in-laws.  They received this painting in the 1980’s. The painting was in storage at a relative’s house in Collingwood, and my mother-in-law liked it so much that it was given to her. I was immediately drawn in. Clara was new to me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canadian art history is something I study, teach and love. I’m also an artist and my greatest source of inspiration is the landscape surrounding Bobcaygeon.  We have a family cottage there. Her story and her work resonate with me. The first time I saw Clara’s, “Summer, Road Between Buckhorn and Bobcaygeon” I cried.

 

I will get the measurements, photos and details ASAP. 

 

Thanks Jenn.  Your comments say it all!
