"(Writing my) autobiography drove me back to the diaries that have sat idle on my shelves for years and made me relive the passions, the heartbreak, and the raptures.  It gave me back my girlhood and the years when I was discovering my artist's eye and the heady joy of creation.  I suffered again through my thirties, when I was desperate with frustrated love and when, too briefly, I knew fulfillment.  Writing gave me a second chance - not to change things, but to savor them.  That is a great gift"  ~ Doris McCarthy

Doris McCarthy: My Life is an intimate glimpse into the life and work of a Canadian icon.  An essential piece of Canadian, artistic and women's history, this memoir marries the best of McCarthy previous writings with exciting new material and traces a compelling woman's life from energetic early childhood to reflective old age, summing up her observations of the world and her place in it.  McCarthy is a woman utterly at east with who she is and with the life she has led.

The Doris McCarthy Gallery is honoured to be named after one of Canada's most renowned artists.  A recipient of the Order of Canada, Order of Ontario, Fellow of the Ontario College of Arts and an Artist of Honour with the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Doris McCarthy's art has been exhibited around the globe.  An avid traveler who taught art for forty years, Doris paints, lives and writes with a joyful energy that is unparalleled.  The DMG opened in March 2004 with a survey exhibition of her works.
