About

One hundred years ago, Tom Thomson died on Canoe Lake. His death is still shrouded in mystery, but what remains clear is his profound influence on Canadian art and most specifically plein air landscape painting. From his impact on the members of the Group of Seven to his eventual ascendancy as a hero of Canadian painting, Thomson’s legendary body of work has dominated our ideas about depicting the wild Canadian landscape in paint.

Now, in memoriam of the passing of this inspiring painter and outdoorsman, 11 Canadian artists will be visiting some of Thomson’s favourite Ontario painting spots and producing plein air works of their own. Their trips will culminate in a show including large format studio work based on the sketches they produce in these hallowed locations.

These artists and their work prove that landscape painting in Canada is still feeling the ripple effect from Tom Thomson’s short but celebrated career.

At the locations the group will continue in the spirit of Toms plein air style but also use todays modern technology such as Phone, Go Pros, Drones, and Cameras to capture the area and retell the story.

An interesting article...

Florence McGillivray studied under Matisse and mentored Tom Thomson. The origin story of Canadian Modernism might have ignored one of its major figures.
