Tom Thomson loved the outdoors, in particular Algonquin Park. Many of our Canadian artists have been inspired by Thomson and his fellow artists of the Group of Seven. We are proud to pay homage to Tom Thomson and commemorate the 100 year anniversary of his death with our art show.
The Canadian Canoe Culture Show is on exhibition at the Muskoka Place Gallery showcasing work inspired by paddling. Artists include Pat Whittle (above), Gayle Dempsey, Janet Stahle, Marc Jordan, Margaret Richards, Greg Hindle, Susan Hindle, Marie St. Germain, Krysia Bower, Lynett McDermott and Natalie Cormack.
The Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10am-5pm.
These four artists explore vulnerability and resilience as they share their artistic interpretation of skins and the personal impact on each of them through the use of acrylic paints and mediums to create thin pieces of dried paint called skins. For Pat Whittle, the terms thick-skinned and thin-skinned resonate deeply for her. Janice Feist feels that skins represent personal vulnerability and that of the animals living on this planet. Wendie Donabie has a vision of the earth’s fragile ecosystem that’s tormented by over use and neglet. Lynda Lynn has great concern for the constant impact of outside influences on both people and the world we inhabit by constantly depleting our natural resources.
4 Skins opens with a public reception on Saturday, October 14 from 1pm until 4pm. The exhibition continues until November 11.
The Chapel Gallery, is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm
Introducing Robert McAffee
His paintings portray an intimate vision of the Canadian wilderness that’s alive, brooding and rhythmic. With their backdrop of endless northern skies, his canvasses sing with poetic vigour and blaze with the vibrant colours of nature. A self-taught artist Robert has been inspired by inspired by Tom Thomson, Jack Reid and Claude Monet.
“I’ve always had a desire to draw and paint our country’s forest landscape. It’s in my bones,” says Robert McAffee. “This passion has taken me from the North Shore of Lake Superior, to the four corners of Algonquin Park, and from Canada’s Rocky Mountains to the scenic highlands of Quebec’s Gatineau Park”.
