Description
Curated presents a fundraising auction in partnership with the Kawartha Art Gallery. This auction features a collection of paintings by Ontario artist Maurice E. Roberts, created between 1942-1965 as the artist travelled throughout Southern Ontario and Quebec. The artist beautifully captured moments in time from communities such as Acton, Picton, Simcoe, Sutton, Beaverton, Brooklin, and Maple, as well as scenes from Kingston, Orillia, Georgian Bay, Toronto, and the Laurentians. These paintings are must-haves for the local history buff! The public is invited to bid on the paintings with proceeds from the sale going to the Kawartha Art Gallery.
