The Spirit of Tom Thomson Art Weekend
September 21, 2018 - September 23, 2018
A Weekend of Art & Algonquin Adventures
Presented by Eclipse Art Gallery and Deerhurst Resort
Eclipse Art Gallery and Deerhurst Resort invite you to follow in the footsteps of legendary artist Tom Thomson, whose mysterious death in Algonquin Park has intrigued both art – and wilderness lovers.
Under the expert guidance of local artist of Gerry Lantaigne, guests re-create a small Tom Thomson painting of their own, and paddle by canoe on Tom’s cherished Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park with a stop at his memorial cairn. The weekend will wrap up on Sunday with a leisurely Group of Seven outdoor mural tour through historic Huntsville, which boasts strong ties to Tom Thomson. Gerry, who is also the outdoor gallery founder, is passionate and knowledgeable about Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven and will entertain you with stories about Tom and his friends throughout the weekend events.
