native Hamilton, Ontario for over 30 years. She was also an
active member of Canada's first English - speaking abstract group,
Painters Eleven. Unlike others in this highly visible group who
were younger than she was and active in Toronto art circles, Hortense
Gordon had spent over 30 years teaching art in a technical school in
the city of Hamilton, Ontario. But she had also studied,
exhibited regularly, and worked tirelessly for recognition as an artist
during her teaching career.
With a background in arts and crafts, she had little formal art
training but had taught herself principles of applied design.
