    Thanks to the National Gallery of Canada, 18 people explored exhibits and channeled Monet for a day. People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love. - Claude Monet

    Inaugurated in November 2001, the Sobey Art Award was administered for nearly 15 years by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, which was instrumental in making the Award what it is today. Now, as the Sobey Art Foundation seeks to expand its national and international audience, the Sobey Art Award / Prix Sobey pour les arts is moving to the National Gallery, where the 2016 nomination call was launched February 4.

    As one of the most cutting-edge of Germany’s post-war artists, Joseph Beuys would have a lasting influence on artists around the world, including Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Anselm Kiefer, Arnaud Maggs and Betty Goodwin, among others. He had always hoped to present his work in Canada and now that hope is realized: 20 sculptures and 60 works on paper are on view at the Gallery until November 2017.

    National Gallery of Canada Director Marc Mayer says so many things I love when dispelling common ideas about art. The end message - art is essential to learning about and defining who we are. Beauty, Taste, Subject, Skill, may all be part of art - or not. See art with an open mind and no agenda. Explore what makes you FEEL - anger, lust, disgust, entrancement, sadness, jealousy, grief, joy are ALL forms of engagement with an artwork. If you are engaged in some way the artist has touched you, and done their job. Art "is fundamental to who we are".

    Only two week-ends left to see Monet: A Bridge to Modernity: if you can't make it in person, the exhibition catalogue is the next best thing! The gorgeously illustrated hardcover volume contains more details on Monet and modern landscape painting, the bridges of Paris and how the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War was represented—a fascinating read.
