Trudeau Portraitist Featured in UVic Art Exhibition

Myfanwy Pavelic, renowned for her portraits of former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, will be among a veritable "who's who" of Canadian artists from the Saanich Peninsula featured at a special art exhibition at UVic's Dunsmuir Lodge, running Friday October 6 to Sunday October 8, 2000.

Participating artists in this limited run exhibit include Pavelic, Fleming Jorgensen, Gwen Curry, Charles Elliott, Roy Henry Vickers and Michael Morris. The exhibition is part of a proposed plan by Dunsmuir Lodge to display the art works of a Saanich Peninsula artist every month.

The exhibition will take place in and around Dunsmuir's newly renovated executive classroom space.

Dunsmuir Lodge is the University of Victoria's executive training and conference facility. It is increasingly the site for university sponsored arts and cultural activities on the peninsula. The Lodge displays more than 500 pieces of art from the University's renowned teaching and research collection of fine and decorative arts, including an impressive 40-foot hallway installation of well-known local artist and former faculty member Don Harvey's six foot high Carmanah Mural.

Exhibit hours:

October 6 to 8, 11am - 7pm
Dunsmuir Lodge, 1515 McTavish Road, North Saanich
Tel: 656-3166
