It was a great opening at the Art Gallery of Sudbury (and a lot of fun).
Don’t miss these two Group of Seven inspired exhibits which are part of http://www.festivaloftheseven.ca
The Mysterious Death of Tom Thomson
Contemporary artist and printmaker George Walker, known for his expressive and meticulously produced wood engraving and wordless novels has produced a limited edition, hand printed volume of 100 engravings documenting the life and death of Tom Thomson.

The Group of Seven Awkward Moments
Winnipeg-based artist/photographer, Diana Thorneycroft “investigates the relationship between the Canadian landscape and national identity. Reproductions of paintings by the famous Canadian collective The Group of Seven are used as backdrops to the dioramas I photograph.” Participants in the Festival of the Seven will be able to tweet their ‘most awkward moments’ and become
part of the festival.
