New Exhibits at Tom Thomson

Owen Sound | by Michael McDonald  

Three new exhibits open at Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound.

Some new exhibits will be on display at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery starting in late January.

Curator Virginia Eichhorn says there are three major exhibits - all very different from one another.

The Convergence 48th Annual Juried Art Exhibition features works of art from all over Ontario - including painting, drawing, sculptures, printmaking, and craft.

The aim is to reward excellence and innovation in artistic production.

The works on display were selected by three jurors faced with the task of selecting the best of 260 art pieces submitted.

The Burden of Innocence exhibit features the work of Natalka Husar (nut-ALL-ka how-ser.)

Husar takes her lifelong obsession with painting and Ukraine into new territory with three narratives in the form of a history play in three acts.

The exhibits take a serious turn with the works of Laura Lee Harris.

Harris has dedicated her work to the nearly 600 young Aboriginal women murdered or missing in the last 30 years.

The new exhibits run from January 16th to March 20th.
