War and Peace: An Artist’s Journey


(Brockville, ON) St. Lawrence College is pleased to present War and Peace: An Artist’s Journey, on view at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery on the Brockville campus November 1 to December 17, 2010.

This exhibition is a retrospective of Ted Zuber’s journey as an artist in war and in peace. Ted was commissioned as Canada’s official war artist to portray Canadian troops and their activities in the Persian Gulf War. As a combatant in the Korean War, Ted did many sketches depicting battles and scenes of everyday life on the front. Years later he transformed his sketches into paintings which were purchased by the Canadian War Museum. Since the completion of Ted’s service to his country the majority of his time is spent capturing the images and life near his studio outside of Seeley’s Bay, Ontario. Landscapes provide a special passion for Ted. This exhibition of Zuber’s work spans over half a century and will be featuring over 70 paintings, prints, plein air sketches, watercolours and sketchbooks.

Opening Reception: November 10, 5 – 7 pm

Gallery Hours:
Monday & Saturday 10:00 - 4:00 pm
Tuesday - Friday 10:00 - 8:00 pm
