Artist Bio:

Tony Urquhart, is a Canadian painter born in Niagara Falls, Ontario. April 9, 1934. He was recognized in the late 1950s and early 1960s as one of Canada’s pioneering abstractionists, having been variously linked with the Toronto painters associated with The Isaacs Gallery and The Heart of London group that included Jack Chambers, Greg Curnoe and Murray Favro. In 1967 with Jack Chamber and Kim Ondaatje, he helped found CAR/FAC (Canadian Artists Representation/Frontes des Artistes Canadiens), the artists’ ‘union’ that first established a fee schedule for public museum and gallery exhibitions of contemporary artists. His work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and Museum London.
