Hooked: Fish, Water and Angling in Art

May 30 – October 4, 2015

Organized by Glenbow
Curated by Mary-Beth Laviolette and Douglas MacLean

The Oldman, Crowsnest, Castle, Highwood, Sheep, Kananaskis, Elbow and the Bow: boasting some of the best fishing in the world, the streams and rivers of southern Alberta and British Columbia have long attracted visitors from all over the globe.

The breathtaking scenery and meditative act of fishing has inspired many artists and photographers; Hooked takes a unique look at the art and culture of fishing.

Featuring paintings, prints, photography, sculpture in clay, glass and bronze, Hooked marries all of this creative activity with other fishing-related objects and books from Glenbow’s collection and that of avid fisher and co-curator, Douglas MacLean. Featuring work by artist/fishers like Tom Thomson, Ted Godwin, Jack Cowin, and Walter May among many others, Hooked opens a window into the passionate world of art dedicated to fish, water and angling.
