Opening Reception: Friday, June 9th, 2017 | 6:00-8:00pm

Throughout the 1930s and 1940s Josh Silburt published over a thousand political and sports cartoons in major newspapers across Canada. Silburt was also the editorial cartoonist at the Sydney Post Record (now the Cape Breton Post) in the mid-1940s. The exhibition will highlight some of the issues that continue to shape Cape Breton culture.

There will be a formal lecture provided by Josh Silburt’s son Allan Silburt on the life and career of the artist on June 9th at 12:00pm in the CBU Art Gallery. More details will be coming soon so stay tuned by checking our social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: links at the bottom of this email) and additional information will be posted on: http://www.cbu.ca/campus/art-gallery/.
