Beaverlodge was home to one of Canada's best artists for over sixty years.
Euphemia McNaught (1902-2002), taught by members of the Group of Seven while she was a student at Ontario College of Art from 1925-1929, lived and taught in Beaverlodge all her life.
To commemorate her life and honour her contribution to Canadian art, BACS is hosting a tribute exhibition from September 29 to October 24.
With the assistance of many individuals, local businesses and institution this exhibition will be the largest retrospect of her work ever displayed.  This is an opportunity to discover new works and enjoy never before seen works from numerous private collections.
