Ten years of the Doris McCarthy Gallery
On March 11, 2004, Doris McCarthy herself cut the ribbon to open UTSC’s art gallery named in her honour. Since then, the Doris McCarthy Gallery (DMG) has hosted 46 different exhibitions. This photo is from the 2008 show, Paragons.
McCarthy, who was a renowned visual artist, is best known for her landscape paintings. To mark its 10th anniversary, the gallery will host an exhibition featuring her depictions of Canada’s North, along with those of contemporary artists exploring our relationship to the natural world.
When she was 78, McCarthy graduated from UTSC with a BA in English. Though she died in 2010 (at age 100), her legacy is strong on the campus.
