The McIntosh Gallery at Western University opens a new exhibition this evening titled, Portraits, self and others (it’s complicated). A new portrait of Joseph Rotman, whose generous donation led to the creation of the Rotman Institute, will be included in the exhibition. From the McIntosh Gallery description of the exhibition:
A highlight of the exhibition will be the first public display of internationally-acclaimed Canadian artist Tony Scherman’s recent portrait of former Western Chancellor Joseph Rotman (1935 –2015), the noted Canadian businessman and philanthropist. Rotman was the founder and benefactor of many successful organizations, including the Rotman Research Institute, the Rotman School of Management, and the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at Western.
The opening reception for the exhibition begins tonight at 7:00 pm. The exhibition will run from September 22nd – October 29th, 2016. For further details on additional works included in the exhibition, please see the Macintosh Gallery exhibitions page.
