Scugog Arts

Port Perry, ON



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible.


Join Cara Reeves as she reads excerpts from “Persephone’s Eden: A Celebration of the Life and Works of Michael Reeves”. The book is a visual delight showcasing many of Michael’s well-known works as well as previously unseen early paintings. The book is punctuated by a series of essays contributed by Michael’s family, friends, colleagues, collectors and critics, detailing his life from his early days and studies as a student at the Bath Academy of Art, through his career as an antiques dealer in London and Toronto, to his transition into full time painting.

Through this book, we hope to create a deep understanding and appreciation for Michael and his extraordinary works and to shed light onto his contribution to the world of International and Canadian art.
