As a form of gift giving and spreading holiday cheer, Christmas cards combine inspirational imagery with heartfelt messages. The cards selected for this exhibition include artworks by seminal Canadian artists of the early and mid-twentieth century. They are the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and ensuing generations who were members of Painters Eleven, proponents of abstract art, and other artists who contributed to the development of the Toronto modern art and design scenes.
