“Harold Town: The Wild One” at Calgary’s Wallace Galleries


“Any artist who doesn’t think he’s the best should quit.” – Harold Town

The brash visual artist, Harold Town, helped introduce abstract art to Canada in the ’50s. In the ’60s, his prints were acquired by the Guggenheim and the MOMA. This month, Calgary’s Wallace Galleries celebrates his work with Harold Town: The Wild One. The online exhibition runs now through May 20th.

With Harold Town: The Wild One, Colette Hubner, the director of Wallace Galleries, is hoping to introduce this notable Canadian artist to a new generation of art lovers.

Colette joined Grant Stovel on Alberta Morning to share more:
