Abstract (English)

This richly illustrated catalogue (with photographs by H. Foster and W. Mattie) showcases the Canadian Museum of Civilization’s collection of folk art. Tilney’s curatorial essay traces the evolution of Canadian outdoor folk art. He outlines differences between “folklore” and “folk art,” and suggests the rise in the number of folk artists is due to the work of ethnologists, curators, collectors and dealers. Tilney’s comments on “outdoor space” also provide an historical overview of gardens (and their transformation within the Canadian context). Includes a brief text by B. Richardson. Bibliography 1 p.
