The McMichael Canadian Art Gallery is an art gallery dedicated to all things in the Canadian Art realm. Their fantastic collection of works by the Group of Seven is paralleled by the austere beauty of the grounds and historical burial site of many of the Group’s members.
TVO made an excellent Lawren Harris Documentary that is free to watch online. As a founding member of the Group of Seven his art has influenced and inspired many artists, and continues to be symbolic of Canadian art.
TVO also made an amazing documentary on searching for the locations that the Group painted at called Painted Land. The McGuffins are experts in the outdoors and photography and offer another unique view at the Canada that the Group of Seven saw.
CBC wrote a short article on Emily Carr. It’s worth looking through and listening to the short clip at the end.
Historica Canada made a great documentary on Tom Thomson’s life, in particular, the mystery of his death. Prepare yourself for the outdoors, great art, and conspiracy!
