This exhibition highlights the repository of documents and ephemera from the family archive of Augustus F. L. Kenderdine, known to many as Gus. Looking beyond the canonical legacy of Kenderdine the painter, this exhibition offers a glimpse into the private life of Gus. This archive is comprised of materials that range from journals, correspondence, letters, photographs, to travel souvenirs and pipes.

Gus Kenderdine’s archival materials have been reconfigured for this exhibition and presented in four themes: family, travel, the war, and life in Saskatchewan.

Organized by the Kenderdine Art Gallery & University Art Collection in collaboration with University Archives & Special Collections, U of S.
