Alex Colville’s Athletes (1961) is a triptych mural painting commissioned by Mount Allison University to be displayed on campus in the lobby of the Athletic Centre. It remained there for over 50 years until its present installation in the stable and secure environment of Owens Art Gallery. Colville’s numerous preparatory sketches show the artist’s careful planning of the composition as a geometric system that flows seamlessly across the panels.

This publication includes a foreword by Hannah Bridger.
