A Weekend of Art & Algonquin Adventures
Presented by Eclipse Art Gallery and Deerhurst Resort
September 8 – 10, 2017
A weekend designed to walk – and paint – in the footsteps of legendary artist, Tom Thomson, whose mysterious death in Algonquin has intrigued both art and wilderness lovers for 100 years. Presented by Eclipse Art Gallery and Deerhurst Resort, guests on this special weekend will create their own replica Tom Thomson painting and also experience his cherished Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park with artist, Janine Marson, who spent a year retracing his steps as she created 100 on location paintings in the same places that Thomson did. Unlike Thomson, however, guests will enjoy all the comforts of Deerhurst Resort, just minutes from Algonquin Park and the charming town of Huntsville, which boasts strong ties to Thomson, and where guests will tour of the Group of Seven outdoor mural gallery.
This year, the spirit of Thomson is being celebrated at Deerhurst Resort, where the Eclipse Art Gallery is featuring a special show, “The Jack Pine: A Tribute to Tom Thomson.” Artist John Kinsella’s winning entry in the resort and gallery’s commemorative Tom Thomson art series competition is also prominently displayed at the main reception desk.

Tom Thomson loved the outdoors, in particular Algonquin Park. Many of our Canadian artists have been inspired by Thomson and his fellow artists of the Group of Seven. We are proud to pay homage to Tom Thomson and commemorate the 100 year anniversary of his death with our art show The Jack Pine on display from July 1 through to October 15.
