WILLIAM KURELEK: JEWISH LIFE IN CANADA

EXHIBITION
Kurelek’s suite of paintings titled “Jewish Life in Canada” was made to honour his friendship with the Toronto art dealer Avrom Isaacs, who offered the artist a framing job at his gallery before discovering his employee’s remarkable creative gifts. A devout Roman Catholic, Kurelek intended “Jewish Life in Canada” as a gesture across the cultural divide, implicitly demonstrating his open-mindedness toward Canadians of cultural and religious backgrounds different from his own.
