History and Art Exhibitions at the Library

“The Artistic Mr. Wilson” exhibition in our main-floor reading room opened on June 20, 2017 when curator Edward McCann gave a talk, and continues until the end of August 2017. George Washington Wilson was a pioneering photographer in Scotland, who famously photographed Queen Victoria and is also remembered for his innovations in landscape photography. The exhibition includes important photographs as well as historic apparatus from Edward McCann’s collection.

The permanent Atwater Writers Exhibition, also on our main floor, tells the history of English-language writing in Quebec from the 1760s to today. New displays are planned for Fall 2017.
