Garside Thomas H.

Thomas Hilton Garside (1906 - 1980)


Born in 1906 at Dukinfield, England, he arrived in Canada in 1914 and later studied at the Monument National, nights, under Edmond Dyonnet and Adam Sheriff Scott, also at the Montreal Art association under Paul Caron and W. H. Taylor. In 1944 his canvas entitled “The Storm”, a landscape, purchased by the Art Association of Montreal was noted by the Montral Gazette as follows: “… it is a strongly painted work of dramatic qualities which reveals the steady progress being made by this young Montreal artist.” His subjects have included scenes from the Laurentian region, Baie St. Paul, Cape Cod, Murray Bay, Newfoundland and the Eastern Townships. He held exhibitions at the Stevens Art Gallery (1945), Continental Galleries (1949) (1955) and exhibitions of the Royal Canadian Academy, the Ontario Society of Artists and at the annual Spring Show of the Art Association of Montreal. Garside was an associate member of the Royal Canadian Academy. He lived in Westmount Quebec until his death in 1980.
