Reflections: The Life and Works of J. W. (Jack) McLaren

From Mirth and Mud at Ypres Salient and Vimy Ridge to the vibrancy of landscapes from Huron County and the Maitland Valley, explore the works of artist Jack McLaren (1895-1988).

This exhibit is presented in partnership with the Huron Historical Society and featuring over 100 artworks on loan from the community.

Jack McLaren fought with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry in WWI, and entertained troops at Ypres Salient, Vimy Ridge and many other locations on the Western Front with the PPCLI Comedy Company and 3rd Division Dumbells Comedy Troupe. McLaren was also a talented artist and writer who enjoyed successful careers as a commercial and editorial illustrator, caricaturist, advertising and promotion executive, and painter throughout much of the 20th century.
