From January 15 to March 25, 2012 the Tom Thomson Art Gallery presents Convergence: 49th Annual Juried Exhibition of Fine Art. All are welcome to join us for the opening reception and awards ceremony on Sunday January 15 at 2pm.

This popular exhibition is a perennial favourite on the Tom Thomson Art Gallery calendar. Featuring work by artists from across the province, Convergence is an opportunity to reflect on contemporary arts practice, examining the issues, subjects and methods that are relevant to artists. A broad range of media is represented including painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and craft.

The exhibition aims to reward excellence and innovation in artistic production. Since this annual show "takes the pulse" of artmaking in the region, we look for work that exemplifies what makers are thinking about – contemporary artists' concerns, working methods, and methods of exploration.
