317 Dundas Street West


We invite you to join us for a free Teachers' Event to celebrate the opening of J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free.

This major exhibition, celebrating the powerful yet contemplative late works of Joseph Mallord William Turner, features more than 50 glorious paintings and watercolours from this giant of British art, on loan from Tate Britain. Heralded by critics across the U.K. as “an exciting, entrancing show” (The Guardian) and “sensational” (London Evening Standard), J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free will be one of the season's most captivating and popular presentations. This exhibition will be on view from October 31, 2015 – January 31, 2016.

Before visiting this exhibition, please join us for a special introductory talk by David Wistow, AGO Senior Interpretive Planner. After the introductory talk, you're welcome to mingle with your colleagues and enjoy light refreshments before visiting the exhibition.

Capacity is limited. Registration for this event closes when capacity has been reached.

Please be sure to register to secure your FREE ticket! We look forward to seeing you on November 4!
