At 9 p.m., join fans and paparazzi outside The Art Space for the celebrity- style arrival of the artist.
The limo transporting Pachter to The Art Space will be ceremoniously heralded to the red carpet by Huntsville’s own Highland Piper Cameron Renwick.
Pachter comes with an entourage — The Pachter Factor Butter Tart Honour Guard. As fans follow him into the exhibition, they will have an opportunity to experience the outdoor projection, walk the red carpet, and have their very own celebrity photo op.
Once in The Art Space, guests can sample the famous Canadian butter tarts, baked and provided by Huntsville and Lake of Bays’ Tall Trees, West Side Fish & Chips, and Erika’s Wild Flour Bake Shoppe.
Photographed and fed, guests will then be ready to meet the incomparable Canadian iconoclast and feast their eyes on the most recent work from his Ice House Studio.
“I have always been in love with Ontario Cottage Country; it’s where my heart is,” said Pachter. “In summer I paint in a waterfront studio on the shore of Lake Simcoe. After shows in France, Germany, the UK, Japan, China and India, I have finally made it to Huntsville. And I’m delighted to be here!”
One of Canada’s leading contemporary artists, Pachter is a painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, historian, and lecturer. His work has been shown at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the McMichael Canadiana Gallery, among others. He has numerous degrees, honorary degrees, and is a member of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier of France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee medal.
If you’ve ever been to Maple Leaf gardens by subway, you’ve seen his work.
His paintings hang in public and private collections around the world. Those of the queen, moose, and maple leaf flag are pop icons of Canadian art. His flag paintings hang in the Toronto Stock Exchange, in the Canadian Embassy in Washington, and in the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. His images of the Queen of England, moose, and maple leaf flag are pop icons of Canadian contemporary art.
McClelland & Stewart publications include an illustrated monograph on his life and work, and The Journals of Susanna Moodie, his celebrated collaboration with poet Margaret Atwood.
