This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Thomas Hilton Garside was a painter and draftsman* known for his landscapes of southern Quebec.

He was born in Dukinfield, England (five miles east of Manchester).  His family emigrated to Montreal (Westmount area), Quebec, Canada in 1914, which is where he lived the rest of his life. (1)

His primary medium was oil paint.  However, he also worked in watercolor, pastel, pencil and charcoal.  His subjects were landscapes, snow scenes, country life, cityscapes, harbors, genre*, portraits and still life.  The locations included southern Quebec in the areas along the St. Lawrence River known as the Charlevoix, the Eastern Townships and the Laurentian Mountains.  He also painted in Newfoundland and Cape Cod, Massachusetts (2). His style could be described as Impressionism*. AskART has some very good illustrations of his typical work.

He studied at the Council of Arts and Manufactures School, Montreal (at the Monument National) under Edmond Dyonnet (3) and Adam Sherriff-Scott and at the Art Association of Montreal (4) under Paul Caron and William Hughes Taylor (5).  The influence of all four teachers, as  seen in the illustrations of their work on their AskART pages, can be detected in the chosen subjects and style of Garside’s paintings.

In 1945 he became an Associate of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts* (6), and exhibited with them from 1937 to 1953.  He also exhibited with the Art Association of Montreal from 1934 to 1939 (7).

His private gallery exhibitions include the Stevens Art Gallery (Montreal) in 1945 and the Continental Galleries (Montreal) in 1949 and 1955 (8).

According to the Canadian Heritage Information Network* examples of his work are in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Quebec (Quebec City) and the Sherbrooke Museum (Quebec). His work is also listed in the collections of the Dalhousie Art Gallery (Halifax, N.S.) and the Owens Art Gallery (Sackville, N.B.) (9).

(1) All sources agree on these dates and locations (see AskART book references). However, most sources spell his birth place " Duckinfield", we could only find "Dukinfield, Cheshire, England" in Google Maps. We could not find any source with the location of his death.

McMann (see AskART book references).  Author’s note: Some credible sources say he was included in Ontario Society of Artists* exhibitions.  However our search, using the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art (CCCA) database of OSA exhibition catalogues (accessible online), found none.
