CON SPIRITO

LILA LEWIS IRVING retrospective

MARCH 1 - APRIL 29, 2012


The Art Gallery of Mississauga is honoured to present a retrospective of Lila Lewis Irving's work, highlighting her career spanning over fifty years. Spontaneity is the root of invention for Irving. Her paintings, in her words, are a “response to a visual or emotional reality. The shapes are simplified and bold, the colours are saturated, the brushstrokes energetic.”

The accompanying catalogue for this exhibition, Appassionata, can be be found on our publications shop online and in gallery.
