The Tom Thomson Memorial is stone, with a brass inscription plate that was designed, engraved and set on the south face of a simple truncated pyramidal cairn of boulders, strongly plied and cemented in a commanding position close to the old camp of the artist. There, above the rocks that still show the paint-scrapings made by the artist in cleaning the palette after work, the simple and fitting memorial stands facing southwards down the long reach of the lake.

Tom Thomson Bronze Statue

37 Main Street East, Huntsville

This statue of Tom Thomson is a depiction of him painting an outdoor sketch in Algonquin Park. Thomson would quickly paint the scenery about him, and capturing the essence of the moment on wooden panels. You can see the paint box on his lap, with a panel inserted in the slots of the lid. After finishing his sketch, he would close the box which would protect the painting from smudging until he was able to return to camp and take it out to  dry. This was the way most of the Group of Seven created their outdoor sketches.
