Voyaging North at Arts on Queen


The above painting of a Scottish farm house, by Sheena Fraser McGoogan, forms part of a solo show called Voyaging North soon to launch in Toronto. A tenant-farmer ancestor of mine, one John McGugan (1726-84), lived in this house on the tiny island of Gigha. Voyaging North features a couple of dozen paintings of Scotland and the Arctic. They were spawned by two recent Adventure Canada voyages. In the north, Sheena was especially taken with the Greenland town of Upernavik. The launch happens on March 3 from 1 to 4 pm at Arts on Queen, 2198 Queen St. East, Toronto. The paintings will be displayed there through March
