Jack Chambers: Christopher Dewdney remembers, Wednesday night at the AGO
The great, big, long-overdue Jack Chambers show at the AGO has been a quiet highlight of the museum's recent programming, re-siting the gifted London, On. painter in the main of the Canadian art conversation. Chambers' story is tragic, having died of leukemia in 1978, leaving a young family behind, but his impact on his immediate community of writers, artists and thinkers has been everlasting. One of the most eminent of that group, writer, poet and cultural theorist Christopher Dewdney, offers an intimate take on his old friend tonight at the Art Gallery of Ontario at 7 p.m., at Jackman Hall. Tickets $20.50.
