Tom Thomson

Tom Thomson (1877-1917) grew up in the Owen Sound area and went on to become one of Canada’s most influential artists.  He inspired the formation of “The Group of Seven” through his expressive, colourful and vibrant way of portraying the Canadian landscape in the early twentieth century.  The Tom Thomson Art Gallery has a significant and intimate collection of his work; most of it having been donated by family members. The majority of it is on view in our ongoing exhibition Canadian Spirit: The Tom Thomson Experience.
