Dear Agnes is a set of picture cards that illustrate a fictitious correspondence between Lois Klassen and Agnes McCausland Richardson Etherington (1880–1954), a key figure in the development of fine arts programs and collections at Queen’s University. The letters and the illustrations were first published inside of the dissertation dossier, Ethics and Participation in Art: Reading the Migration Library and other Methods (Lois Klassen, 2018, Queen’s University).
