Original Group of Seven Artworks

Artist Interpretations of Canadian Identity

Click the image to enlarge and to read the artist synopses for each work.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Group of Seven’s first exhibition, the Temiskaming Art Gallery invited artists of Northern Ontario (as defined by the NOAA) and NorthWestern Quebec to submit their own interpretations of Canadian identity. The Group of Seven was highly successful in presenting a unified image of Canadian identity rooted in the motif of the untamed North. TAG acknowledges that this identity was rooted within a singular viewpoint, and we feel that now it is time to diversify our conception of what it means to be Canadian, especially in the north.

Pour célébrer le 100e anniversaire de la première exposition du Groupe des Sept, la Galerie d'art du Temiskaming a invité des artistes du nord de l'Ontario (tel que défini par la NOAA) et du nord-ouest du Québec à soumettre leurs propres interprétations de l'identité canadienne. Le Groupe des Sept a remporté un vif succès en présentant une image unifiée de l'identité canadienne enracinée dans le motif du Nord indompté. Le GAT reconnaît que cette identité était ancrée dans un point de vue singulier, et nous pensons qu'il est temps maintenant de diversifier notre conception de ce que signifie être Canadien, en particulier dans le Nord.
