Presenting Sponsor: EPCOR through their Heart + Soul Fund


Responding to THE WORKS Festival’s intended 2020 theme “Yield”, the exhibition “Bowing to the Figure” presents a broad range of conceptual and formalistic approaches to the aspect of human form. Featuring drawings, paintings, and sculpture from Harcourt’s Live Model Sessions, the exhibition allows the viewers to contemplate the beauty of the human body from several stylistic directions in the history of art ranging from Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism through Cubism and Expressionism, to semi-abstract forms. This exhibition doubles as a fundraiser with 70% of the proceeds to be designated to the artists while the remaining 30% will support Harcourt’s art exhibitions and art education programs.

The works can be purchased until March 5, 2021 by emailing or calling Harcourt House during business hours, Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, tel. 780-426-4180. We accept cash, cheques, Debit Card, VISA, and Master Card. The purchased works will be available for pick up at Harcourt’s office during the business hours upon previous arrangement with Harcourt’s staff.
