In 2020, the Huntsville Festival of the Arts celebrated the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Group of Seven Artists through this very Canadian project. Huntsville artist Gerry Lantaigne, known for his work on the Group of 7 Outdoor Gallery, created 7 new murals, each painted on the underside of a canoe and featuring the work of one the Group of 7 members. These murals celebrate the role of the Group of Seven and the canoe in shaping Canada’s national identity.
Throughout the summer of 2021, these canoes will be exhibited in different outdoor spaces throughout Ontario. Following this, the canoes will be auctioned off as part of the Algonquin Outfitters Paddle Art Auction in September 2021. The online auction will take place between September 13-27.
