During recent years, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston has sponsored a series of one-man exhibitions of deceased Canadian artists. This ambitious programme has embraced such men as J. Harlow White, J.P. Cockburn, George Heriot and William Brymner; more are proposed for the future. Recently Daniel Fowler's name was added to the ever-growing list. This latest exhibition, organized by Frances K. Smith of the gallery staff, is a more mature version of a Fowler show held some years ago. Her reexamination is accompanied by a most ambitious and commendable catalogue which incorporates significant research material unearthed as a background to the presentation. Similar publications have accompanied all of the exhibitions and cumulatively provide a sizeable and important body of Canadian art literature. The Agnes Etherington's record of achievement in historical Canadian exhibitions and catalogues must surpass that of any other comparable gallery during a similar period, and indeed be the envy of the nation's largest institutions.
