The Art Bank remembers the artists who
have passed away in the last three years
The Art Bank would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of the 27 artists with work in its collection who have passed away since 2004. Their work continues to bring pleasure to our many Art Bank clients.
The majority of these works were purchased in the 70s and 80s – an indication of how successful the jury process has been in identifying and purchasing major Canadian artists.
