As part of the 2019 Retrospective, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new book “Persephone’s Eden: A Celebration of the Life and Works of Michael Reeves”. The book is a visual delight showcasing many of Michel’s well-known works as well as previously unseen early paintings. The book is punctuated by a series of essays contributed by Michael’s family, friends, colleagues, collectors and critics, detailing his life from his early days and studies as a student at the Bath Academy of Art, through his career as an antiques dealer in London and Toronto, to his transition into full time painting. The year-long Retrospective includes three gallery shows and the recently restored cottage and grounds are featured on this years’ Lake Scugog Studio Tour May 4th and 5th. This is a unique opportunity to see the family’s private collection including more of his early works, none of which have been shown before.
Through this book, we hope to create a deep understanding and appreciation for Michael and his extraordinary works, and to shed light onto his contribution to the world of international and Canadian art.
The book launch will be held at the Lattitude 44 Gallery in Toronto on May 16th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
