Art & Travel Committee

The McIntosh Gallery Art & Travel Committee in conjunction with Alumni Western is comprised of volunteers who organize a range of art, architectural, historical, and cultural focused tours.  They offer day trips to galleries, museums and institutes nearby; 2-5 day trips within North America, and longer international trips. They also present, in conjunction with member Mary Redekop, lecture series on a variety of art history subjects. 

All profits from their activities are donated to the McIntosh Gallery in support of its acquisition and other agreed programs. The McIntosh Gallery Art & Travel Committee commenced their work in 2014 and have to date contributed funds for the acquisition of Shelley Niro's Parallel Worlds of Women and Warriors.

Dancing at Lughnasa is an Irish masterpiece written by Brian Friel in the 30s. Five unforgettable women try to eke out an existence - no tears without laughter- no laughter without tears. Each woman is filled with a passion but deal with it in their own way - except when they are all equally possessed by the spirit of the dance. Dancing with Lughnasa has won Olivier and Tony awards for Best Play.
