    So what is a docent anyway? From the Latin verb "to teach," a docent is a person who acts as a guide in a museum, art gallery, or historic site. Also known as a wonderfully kind and generous person, because a docent is, most often, a volunteer. Thanks to our docents who are among 12.7 million volunteers in Canada who give 2 billion hours of their time, according to Volunteer Canada #NVW2016

    Above and Below the Minocão shows a raised highway that cuts through São Paulo on a Sunday, when it is open only to pedestrians. The absence of cars, and of a soundtrack, lends an uncanny peacefulness to the scene. “I like my films without sound,” says Mark Lewis, “because it abstracts the visual experience and asks us to imagine the missing elements through the visual.” You can see this work in the 2016 Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts exhibition, on view at the Gallery, in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts | Conseil des Arts du Canada.

    Two of the most legendary collectors in recent time owned this exquisite lamp before the Gallery purchased it in 1977. It is first documented in the possession of celebrated Russian collector Anatole Demidoff, 1st Prince of San Donato. Sold after his death, the trail goes cold until the lamp turns up again in the collection of J. Pierpont Morgan, a great American collector. Now, you can visit Lamp with Psyche in gallery C209 of our European art galleries.

    Throughout the 1950s, Paraskeva Clark was given frequent solo exhibitions in Canada, and her work was acquired by major public and private collectors. In 1982, her paintings and drawings were profiled in an exhibition at the National Gallery, along with an NFB documentary called Portrait of the Artist as an Old Lady—together showcasing the blazing originality of an artist who helped ensconce both politics and a European sensibility within Canadian art. A Window on Paraskeva Clark is on view at the The Ottawa Art Gallery | La Galerie d'art d'Ottawa until May 29, 2016.
