In Memory of John Donald O’Henly

March 15, 1923 — January 20, 2023

We are deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of respected London artist John O’Henly.

A decorated veteran of the Second World War, John used government benefits for veterans to attend the Ontario College of Art. Upon graduation from Teachers’ College, he began a teaching career at H. B. Beal Secondary School that spanned more than three decades encouraging and inspiring hundreds of students. He also pursued a personal art practice in painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography.

The McIntosh Gallery Collection holdings of John’s artworks include photography, collage, etching and aquatint, and drawing.

Our sincere condolences to the O’Henly family.
