Katharine Lochnan, Senior Curator, Art Gallery of Ontario
“I hope to have inspired others to find meaning and purpose by engaging passion and spirituality in the creation of vision, and by conveying through collections, exhibitions, publications and lectures the vital interconnections between artistic creativity, faith and vision.” – Katharine Lochnan
Born in Ottawa and raised in London, England, Katharine’s love of art began early in life and blossomed. From copying Egyptian wall paintings at the British Museum as a child, to internships at the National Gallery of Canada, British Museum and at the Art Gallery of Ontario under the aegis of the legendary director Mario Amaya, Katharine has curated numerous exhibitions through negotiating loans with the Art Institute of Chicago, the Louvre in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City – all while simultaneously embarking on her PhD at the Courtauld Institute.
Her current exhibition at the AGO, “Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh & More”, is heralded by the Globe and Mail as “A feast for the senses and the soul”. The exhibition runs from October 22, 2016 – January 29, 2017. Visit www.ago.net/mystical-landscapes for details.
