Close Looking: Mary Hiester Reid and Helen McNicoll

Join author Molly Peacock and curator Renée van der Avoird as they discuss historical Canadian artists Mary Hiester Reid and Helen McNicoll. Two of the first women to achieve success as professional artists in Canada, Hiester Reid and McNicoll radically broadened traditional concepts of femininity, domesticity and the potential for women to pursue careers as artists. This Close Looking talk accompanies the exhibition The Open Door: Mary Hiester Reid and Helen McNicoll.
