Join us for William Stuart: Protrait of an Island Artist, on display at Eptek Art & Culture Centre until October 1st 2021!
Stuart's artwork makes an important contribution to our province's history. In his artwork, Stuart captures the everyday life and landscape of late 19th-century Prince Edward Island, with a particular focus on Western Prince County. Many of the locations in Stuart's paintings can still be recognized today, evoking a powerful connection to the past and stressing the ongoing importance of Western PEI's rural identity.
This is the first time that Stuart's art has been gathered together in one place, to present a retrospective of his life and work. We hope this exhibtion will bring more attention to the important contributions of this often-overlooked Island artist.
This project has been generously supported by the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation, alongside many of the descendants of Reverand William Stuart.
