The Facing Page:  Illustrations by Scott McKowen for Jane Urquhart's A Number of Things Exhibition

Jane Urquhart celebrates Canada’s sesquicentennial with a rich collection of essays inspired by fifty quintessential (and often surprising) Canadian objects. Scott McKowen spent eighteen months tracking down each of the objects on Jane’s list capturing them in his distinctive and exquisite scratchboard illustrations. This exhibition, featuring 45 original engravings for the book, looks at the celebration of a uniquely formed Canadian Identity and Iconography as interpreted through the dual lenses of an artist and writer and the relationship that is formed between image and text.
