Steve Martin is guest curator at Boston art exhibition

BOSTON — Steve Martin has some happy eyes to go with those happy feet.

The actor and comedian is guest curator of an exhibition at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts devoted to Canadian modernist Lawren Harris.

Martin will be on hand Friday for a preview of the exhibition, and he’ll discuss Harris’ work at Saturday’s public opening of the show. He is a passionate arts patron and collector.

Thirty Harris paintings will be on display, including landscapes of the northern shores of Lake Superior, the icy waters of the eastern Arctic and snow-capped Rocky Mountain peaks.

Martin says Harris deserves international acclaim for reaching “another level of the metaphysics of landscape.” Harris died in 1970.

“The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris” runs through June 12. TVJ
