Action Painting II – Mark Ramsey, 1984
Christmas White House – Erró, 1974
An Adult’s Toy – BGL (a collective founded in Quebec City), 2003

Storm Brewing over Hochelaga – Marc-Aurèle Fortin, ~1940
Lady in Black – Mrs. Albert Henry Steward Gillson, born Olive May McChleary, ~1936
5pm is closing time on Sundays which means the majority of the collection is yet to be explored. I’ll return to finish my list of favourites.
