Art for Lunch: John Gould: An Artist’s Journey Back from a Stroke with Ingi Gould and Frances Thomas

April 8, 2016

In 1996, renowned Canadian artist John Gould suffered a stroke that affected the right side of his body and changed his life forever. He was stripped of his ability to speak, write and draw. During his recovery at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) in Barrie, Gould regained his ability to draw through rehabilitation therapy, daily practice and the enduring support of his wife, Ingi. The evolution took ten years of uncompromising effort on Gould’s part and he was able to continue showing his work to great critical acclaim.
In this presentation, Ingi Gould, along with Frances Thomas, a practicing artist and Curator and Coordinator of the permanent art collection at RVH, trace the long and impressive career of John Gould through stories and images. Ingi shares insights into the life of her husband and the painful but rewarding “comeback” after he suffered his stroke, while Thomas sheds light on Gould’s artistic production from both before and after his stroke.

Featured Ontario Festivals

This is it! These are them!

Our annual list of Best Festivals, or as we call it around the office “The Bestivals” list.

We pick a new list each year, some are hosted by our advertisers, some festivals we have sponsored and well, some we think are just plain pretty cool.

The list has been assembled keeping in consideration current trends and what people out there really seem to be seeking out. We’ve tried to include events and festivals that might be family focused, adult focused, or both!
