FRANK PANABAKER

CANADIAN ARTIST

1904-1992

Frank Panabaker enjoyed a considerable international reputation for his paintings of the Canadian landscape.

Born in Hespeler (now Cambridge), he made his home in the Hamilton area for most of his life. He attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto and continued his studies at the Grand Central School of Art in New York.

Frank Panabaker had his first show at the Preston Springs Hotel in 1927. From that time, he was a fully self-supporting professional artist. With his wife Katherine's support and able assistance, more exhibitions followed across southern Ontario. Several wealthy sponsors provided a steady income in exchange for paintings which carried the young couple through the difficult depression years.

He spent his time trekking through the lanes in Southern Ontario, on the shores of Georgian Bay, in the hills and lakes of Haliburton, Muskoka and Algonquin Park. He also painted Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Alberta, Vermont and even Nassau.

Much of his subject matter was local scenes in and around Ancaster, the Dundas valley and marsh, and of course, Hamilton. From the royal yacht Brittania in Hamilton Harbour, to the Hamilton Farmers' Market, the Tiger Cats and Gore Park, Frank Panabaker documented the life and times of the Steel City from the 1940's to through to the 1990's.

He painted up until the last week of his life, dying in his 88th year in 1992.
