About this exhibition

The Owens Art Gallery collection is a valuable resource for teaching and learning at Mount Allison University. This exhibition was organized to support the work of students in Auditing 3161, a third year course in the Commerce department taught by Professor Brent White. For the third year, Brent White has collaborated with the Owens in developing a session that uses the Owens collection for interdisciplinary investigation.

This exhibition takes the idea of the window as a way to look across time and medium to consider a motif that is used by artists in various ways—from a formal framing device to one rich with symbolic meaning.

This exhibition includes works by Ghitta Caisserman-Roth, Carl Zimmernan, Mary Pratt, Erik Edson, Nancy Stevens, Gerard Collins and Christopher Pratt among others.
