Performance Notes

× Painting The Wilderness Of The Oxtongue

A 100th year anniversary celebration of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.

Take a journey with Jean and Bob Hilscher, an award-winning film producer, along the Oxtongue Waterway near Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. The Oxtongue Waterway begins where the Oxtogue River flows out of Canoe Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park, flows through Oxtongue Lake in Haliburton County, and continues its run into Lake of Bays in Muskoka County.

It is here that landscape artists Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley and A.J. Casson began to paint the Canadian landscape in 1912.

This film documentary brings history alive as it relates the challenges faced by Tom Thomson and the future Group of Seven members when they set out for the first time to Paint the Canadian Wilderness.

Proceeds from this show help further the nonprofit efforts of Oxtongue Lake for Arts and Culture (OLAC) to create a better understanding of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.

Join us as this intriguing film returns to the Algonquin Theatre, where it premiered back in 2015.

Tickets: $15 (+ tax)
