Periodically a friend of the Owens is invited to select a work or two, or sometimes three from the Owens' collection. These community members, students, staff and faculty share their own perspectives and connections to works that they pick and to the collection overall.

The Owens Art Gallery's collection began with an initial group of 300 predominantly European paintings, prints and drawings acquired in 1885 as a teaching collection for art students to study and copy. The collection has now grown to over 3000 works of art including paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture and multi-media work by established Canadian and International Artists.

This exhibition is part of an ongoing series of community curated exhibitions. Follow the series online now.
