Exhibition Curated by:
Dan Ring, Chief Curator, Mendel Art Gallery
Dan Ring is well known for curating exhibitions that examine the relationship between art production and place. He has coordinated the exhibition and completed significant new research that chronicles and analyses Henderson’s work, and places it in a historical context.

Dr. Neal McLeod
Neal McLeod is a visual artist, writer, humorist, and educator who was raised on the James Smith Cree First Nation in northeastern Saskatchewan. He discusses Henderson’s paintings as mnemonic icons for Aboriginal people today. His field work with Aboriginal people in and around the Qu’Appelle Valley has been instrumental in identifying the subjects of Henderson’s Aboriginal portraits.
