THEME: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE GROUP OF SEVEN AND TOM THOMSON
The authors of In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson, Jim and Sue Waddington, will discuss some of the 600 painting sites they have discovered and compare them with corresponding art works. They have been tracking the Group of Seven sites since the 1970's and every search required different solutions, as the Group members did not keep detailed records. The couple live in Hamilton and have spoken about their quest and their book around Ontario. They will discuss how they found the painting sites and what they learned about the artists.
This event will be held at Mount Zion Community Hall, with a lunch following the presentation.
