Thomson’s Painting
October 4, 2019 – March 15, 2020
Opening First Friday, October 4  |  6:00 – 9:00 PM
Members Reception 7:00 PM | RSVP Required


Thomson’s Painting marks 100 years since the gallery acquired Tom Thomson’s (1877-1917) painting Chill November and mines documents from the Lambton County and Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery archives to explore the history. The exhibition recognizes those that played fundamental roles in the acquisition of fine art like Norman Gurd, Dr. MacCallum and a group of women that became the Women’s Conservation Art Association. For the first time in fifteen years the painting is reunited with its original sketch Wild Geese: Sketch for “Chill November,” which is generously on loan from Museum London.
