Artist Julie Sando will lead a tour this Wednesday of Made in America, 1900-1950: Photographs from the National Gallery of Canada, a photo show at the Art Gallery of Windsor.

Julie Sando is a Windsor artist who mixes photographic imagery of everyday experiences with a variety of texts. She has exhibited her artworks in the US and Canada, has published writings on photography and is a member of the creative team for a documentary (currently in production) on mug shot photography.

Made in America, 1900–1950: Photographs from the National Gallery of Canada is organized and circulated by the National Gallery of Canada and presented at the AGW with the support of The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation.

The show features approximately eighty photographs, including Ansel Adams’s influential five-part Surf Sequence (1940) and Minor White’s Song Without Words (1947; printed 1960) and celebrate the exceptional contribution that American photographers made to the history of art during the first half of the twentieth century.
