AGO's Picturing the Americas Exhibition ReviewI have traveled all over the world including all three Americas. And I was still in awe of the amazing paintings and artwork at the Art Gallery of Ontario's exhibit Picturing the Americas.
From beautiful depictions of the Canadian wilds to the bloody aftermaths of indigenous wars, Picturing the Americas lets visitors explore lands not yet visited and view familiar places in a new light.
|A Blue Hole, Jamaica, 1866 by Fritz George Melby|
|Two Hummingbirds with an Orchid, 1875 by Martin Johnson Heade|
|Morning in the Peruvian Andes, around 1870 by Henry Augustus Ferguson|
And thanks to this exhibit, I have decided on my next great trip! Stay tuned for more details (hint: it's in South America)! Picturing the Americas is running until September 20, 2015.
