Quiet Nature:

The Woodblock Prints of Walter J. Phillips

March 9, 2019 - May 20, 2019 Michelle Jacques | Ker Gallery

SEASON OPENER | SATURDAY, MARCH 9 | ALL DAY | ADMISSION BY DONATION

“Since boyhood my ambition was to make prints.” Walter J. Phillips’ early goal was finally achieved when the British-born artist moved to Winnipeg at the age of 29. There he learned the etching process from a fellow artist. In the years following, he moved on to the woodcut technique, first teaching himself, and then, in London, learning from English printmakers, and notably, from the Japanese artist Mokuchu Urushibara (1888-1953).

Organized in conjunction with Landscapes of Edo: Ukiyo-e from the AGGV’s Collection and Fiona Tan: Ascent, the exhibition considers the influence of Urushibara and other Japanese printmakers on Phillips’ work and his important role in popularizing the Japanese woodcut tradition in Canada.
