Long interested in people’s connection to their environment, artist John Hartman has embarked on “Many Lives Mark This Place,” a project to capture the intimate relationship Canadian authors have with their personal places of inspiration. The result is a new portrait exhibition that celebrates the richness of Canada’s literary fabric and speaks to the power of imagination.
Join John Hartman with authors and muses Michael Crummey (The Innocents), Susan Swan (The Dead Celebrities Club) and Guy Vanderhaeghe (Daddy Lenin and Other Stories), to view their stunning portraits and discover the stories behind this new body of work. This conversation will be moderated by Leah Sandals.
Please note that the name of Hartman’s project cited in the printed Festival guide has since changed.
