A loved object is any item that is the cause or subject of passion. Everyday objects, including artworks, are often the recipients of our emotional investments. The artworks featured in The Loved Object were acquired by the Woodstock Art Gallery in the last six years and have been the subject of the passions of their owners and creators, past and present.

In the histories of the Anishinaabe peoples, Turtle Island began as a piece of earth placed on the back of a turtle. The soil began to grow, creating the Place of the Great Turtle’s Back. A large private collection representing the past fifty years of artwork created on Turtle Island will be exhibited together for the first time. The exhibition features the artwork of over forty artists including: Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, and Carl Beam.
