Museum of Northern History Exhibition

A Poster Promo for the exhibit Beatrix & Grace in the Underland
Beatrix & Grace in the Underland
Until April 1, 2023
The Museum of Northern History & Contemporary Art Committee are pleased to anounce this special exhibition curatred by Virginia Eichhorn. Eichhorn drew inspiration from the Sir Harry Oakes Chateau, and in particular the unique plasterwork of Nancy's bedroom.
The exhibit highlights the storytelling of Nancy's bedroom, asking "What if Fairy Tales were real?"
Would you venture into the woods, off the path, and risk encountering a wolf with big teeth or a witch in a house made of candy? Would you travel through an enchanted forest, descending through a secret cave, deep into the earth encountering beings who may or may not be your friends? Would you do it to save someone you love?

The Tale of Beatrix and Grace in the Underland is a tale of love, loss and hope. Inspired by the walls in "Nancy's Room" at the Museum, this "tale" is about the unbreakable bond between sisters, and of the limits they will go to for one another regardless of whatever monsters they may encounter.

This exhibition references fairy tales, Kirkland Lake history, the environment, ancients truths and knowledge, and familial love and traditions. Visitors will be invited to lose themselves in the magical world known as the Underland, as they accompany Beatrix & Grace on their journey.
The exhibit features unique art installations by four prominent Canadian Artists - Christian Bernard Singer, Michele Karch-Ackerman, Tina Poplawski, and Tim Whiten. 
Tim White was just announced as the winner of the Gershon Iskowitz Prize for outstanding contributions to the Visual Arts in Canada. The prize includes $75,000 and a 2025 solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. 
The exhibit will be on display in the Museum's Gallery until April 1st, 2023.
