Wrinch was the Art Director at Bishop Strachan School (BSS) from 1901 to 1936. While holding this position, she designed the school’s chapel interior, including a large stained-glass window.[9] Throughout her career in education & art, Wrinch was a member of many artist organizations. She was made an Associate member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, & actively worked with the Ontario Society of Artists, a professional artists association advocating for visual arts in Ontario through exhibitions & special projects. Wrinch also was a member of the Heliconian Club & Women’s Art Association of Canada, which are two non-profit associations that connect & promote women’s participation in the arts.[10] Besides these groups, Wrinch was a member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, American Society of Miniature Painters, Canadian Handicrafts Guild & Canadian Society of Graphic Art.[10] Wrinch’s first commercial exhibition was at The Art Metropole (241 Yonge Street) in 1966.[10] It was curated by former curator & dealer Jerrold Morris & included 50 of Wrinch’s works alongside 50 of Mary Heister Reid’s works.[10] Wrinch’s first public exhibition was in 1969 at the Art Gallery of Ontario & was curated by Joan Murray.[11] Muriel Miller originally wrote on the artist’s life & career in 1940.[11] Curator Joan Murray wrote, Mary Wrinch: Canadian Artist, in the journal, Canadian Antiques Collector, in 1969. This essay remains as the most significant & comprehensive writing on Wrinch’s art along with Chris Dickman’s essay in The Prints of Mary Wrinch.[11] in 1925 & the years that followed, Wrinch frequently sketched with her husband, George Reid, in Algoma, Temagami, Bruce Peninsula & Ottawa Valley.[4] She ended her artistic career in 1944.[3] in 2020, the Art Gallery of Ontario exhibited her miniature portraits & landscape prints in a show titled Mary Wrinch: Painted from Life.[12] Mary Evelyn Wrich Lino It Delphinium & Daisies 11/100
