Remembering Marguerite Raper (1921-2017)
Marguerite (Marg) Raper was, amongst many things, a talented lifelong amateur artist who very much appreciated the work of the Group of Seven.
She had a love of nature which was featured in many of her art works and which also brought her (and her husband Roy) to Killarney Provincial Park, always with a sketchbook close at hand.
Marg would be pleased to know that amateur artists with a similar love of nature are being supported in her memory.
