NEW EXHIBITION PAYS TRIBUTE TO TOM THOMSON ON THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH
11 bush-trekking Canadian artists retrace the journeys of one of Canada’s greatest painters in a year-long project culminating in new exhibition to premiere September 8
As one of the most celebrated Canadian painters of the twentieth century, Tom Thomson’s contributions to Canada’s art landscape and impact on some of our country’s greatest painters that followed him is indelible. Now, 100 years after his untimely death in 1917, his influence lives on and will be celebrated in an upcoming exhibition titled, Untamed Things, taking place September 6 -19, 2017 at Arta Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District.
The exhibition will be the culmination of a yearlong project by 11 acclaimed painters from across Ontario who are retracing Thomson’s footsteps through Algonquin Park, as inspiration for their own artistic explorations.
Please join us at the opening night reception, Friday September 8, starting at 6 - 9pm.
