Tom Hodgson, Untitled, c. 1990, pencil, charcoal, and pastel on paper, from the collection of the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery
Un-censored is an exhibition of captivating figure drawings, never previously exhibited, by famed Canadian artist, Tom Hodgson. Though Hodgson is predominantly known as a Canadian abstract painter and member of the Painters Eleven (1953), his fondness of life drawing was evident as his studio, The Pit, became a hotspot for Toronto’s artistic and business milieu in the 1970s. Hodgson was responsible for establishing Toronto’s longest running life drawing class, housed at the Gladstone Hotel for the past thirty years. Still in endurance today, the drawing class is a relic of the Canadian art scene.
