Joyce Wieland (1930-1998), Canadian painter, textile artist and film-maker, exhibited work, both in solo and group shows, in several Canadian and international galleries including the National Gallery of Canada (the first major exhibit of a living Canadian woman artist), the Art Gallery of Ontario (the first major retrospective exhibit of a living Canadian woman artist), Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Vancouver Art Gallery, the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as galleries in Japan, Israel, Austria and England. Several of these galleries and the Art Gallery at Yale University, the Art Gallery at Princeton University, Norman Mackenzie Gallery (Regina), and several Canadian regional galleries and private collectors have Wieland art or films in their collections. In addition, she undertook commissions for the Toronto Transit Commission, the Cineplex Odeon Theatre chain, Via Rail, the Laidlaw Foundation and the National Science Library in Ottawa. Her film works, including The Far Shore, were screened at several theatres, galleries and film festivals in Edinburgh, London, Berlin, Hong Kong, Paris, Cannes, as well as in Washington, New York, Pittsburgh, Ann Arbor, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Wieland taught both film and painting at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Toronto (as artist in residence), the Nova Scotia College of Art, Queen's University, McMaster University and the San Francisco Art Institute. She was awarded several Canada Council grants, won a Toronto Arts Award (1987), was a member of the Royal Academy of Arts (1973) and was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1983.
