2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. As Canadians across the nation reflect on the war to end all wars, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum will showcase one of the conflict’s forgotten stories — the War’s horses and the veterinarians of the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps who cared for them. Life for horses in the War was hard. They often lived outdoors, subject to the elements in dirty, wet environments. At times, water and food were scarce. Fear and stress were high, and not only were horses threatened by shellfire, but disease was rampant. With artifacts from the C.A.V. Barker Museum of Canadian Veterinary History, this exhibition explores how the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps worked to prevent and treat disease and injury among horses used during the First World War.

Upcoming Events

Vernissage: Sun Feb 8th, 2015 — 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm Cube Gallery presents the work of Daphne Odjig—a recipient of the Order of Canada, a winner of the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts and at 95 years old, still one of Canada’s most distinguished artists. Odjig’s free-hand, sweeping imagery depicts First Nations culture—past and present—traditions and mythology. Daphne Odjig is a celebrated Canadian artist of international status and acclaim whose free-hand images draw deeply upon her First Nations Odawa-Potawatomi and English heritage. Her earliest artistic influences came from her grandfather Jonas, a stone carver who encouraged her art as a child and frequently told her Potawatomi stories as they sketched side-by-side. In adulthood, she drew deeply upon the work of Picasso as one of her favourite studies. Her art is often characterized as Woodlands Style although is can also be said that her work is not purely Aboriginal, Canadian or European but a distinctive blend of all three.
