A Highly Whimsical Canadian Historical Themed Diorama by Terry Pfliger

  • A Highly Whimsical Canadian Historical Themed Diorama by Terry Pfliger


    An amusing & highly whimsical wall mounted diorama, featuring a mixed media three-dimensional interior depicting figures in a forested landscape who have happened upon a cache of lost parts belonging to the famous Canadian military aircraft ‘The Avro Arrow’. The scene is described in the artists hand as observed on the outer front edge of the case that reads… “While deep in the woods on a fishing trip, Dave & Sydney stumble upon the lost cache of Avro Arrow parts”.

    The multi-tiered hand-made case measuring 16” wide x 11.75” high x 7” deep, signed & dated 1992, and signed & dated again on the reverse.


    Terry Pfliger (1947-2016) was an American born & highly accomplished professional artist & educator.  He taught visual arts at Loyalist College & Vocational Institute in Kingston Ontario before accepting the position as head of the art department at St. Lawrence College in Kingston Ontario, which he held from 1973-95. Afterwards he moved to Michigan where he taught art at Southwestern Michigan College and was elected Professor Emeritus. He exhibited for several years in both solo & group exhibitions in Ontario Canada, and in Michigan, USA.


    Similar examples of the artists work are represented in the permanent collection of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queen’s University, Kingston Ontario.        


    Terry Pfliger was part of a group of artists including Tobey Anderson, David Bierk, Denise Ireland, Paterson Ewan & others represented by the Whitewater Gallery in North Bay Ontario, who were involved in a touring exhibition titled ‘Reflecting a Rural Consciousness’ organized by Artspace in January 1979.
