Past Exhibitions

Henri Masson, Double Sonata

 

Of Note

2 June - 1 October 2017

This exhibition of artworks from the collection of the Owens Art Gallery has been organized in recognition of recent milestones in the Department of Music at Mount Allison University.

From the beginning, Mount Allison established a reputation for excellence in the study of music.  Music was part of the curriculum for every student enrolled in the ‘Female Branch’ of the Mount Allison Wesleyan Academy (later the Mount Allison Ladies’ College), opened in 1854.  The first music conservatory opened on campus in 1891, replaced by the ‘new’ Marjorie Young Bell Conservatory of Music in 1966-- for which 50th anniversary celebrations were held last year.  Several recent events marked the important 100th anniversary of the first Bachelor of Music degree awarded at Mount Allison to Mary Elsinore “Elsie” Tait in 1917.
