The Shepherds: Two Lives in Art

In this art exhibit, The Rooms examines Helen and Reginald Shepherds' artistic production over the last half-century, bringing to light relatively unknown works in private hands and presenting favourites from the Gallery collections. As Helen became well known for her commissioned portraits and meticulous still lifes, Reginald concentrated on atmospheric serigraphs and watercolours of Newfoundland, and the occasional site-specific painting. 

 

Women In Sport

In 1895 the participation of women in sports was novel. Today the achievements of female athletes are celebrated. Yet the stories of the women who participated in sports in pre-confederation Newfoundland have rarely been recorded or documented. The Women in Sport Virtual Exhibit was inspired by interviews with women involved in athletic pursuits in pre-1949 Newfoundland, conducted by archivists Linda Murphy and Frances Horwood.
