The Tom Thomson Art Gallery is a regional public gallery and national cultural attraction with a top-notch and revolving program of contemporary and historical exhibitions, lectures, forums, films, concerts and workshops.

As a dynamic place where artists and audiences can meet and flourish, the Tom Thomson Art Gallery provides enriching experiences through art for a range of visitors, showing the art of today and influencing the art of the future. Exhibitions are accompanied by informative materials and scheduled tours are conducted by trained guides – all designed to bring a new dimension to visitors’ enjoyment and appreciation of art and its creation.

An ambitious program of exhibitions by local and Canadian artists makes the Tom Thomson Art Gallery a focal point for opportunities to experience the ever-changing world of contemporary art. Enjoy new artistic media such as video, sound, performance and installation, alongside traditional fine arts such as painting, sculpture and craft, in exhibitions that showcase current tendencies in visual art.

The Gallery frequently collaborates with other Canadian and international institutions to produce touring exhibitions and artists’ publications, and has established itself as a vital link in a national dialogue on contemporary art.

Works by Tom Thomson – who inspired the formation of the Group of Seven through his transformative portrayal of the natural world – and his contemporaries are on permanent display in the Gallery’s Canadian Spirit Exhibition. Exhibitions of Thomson’s oil sketches, graphics, memorabilia and archival materials offer unique insight into one of Canada’s most influential artists of the 20th century

The Tom Thomson Art Gallery has its own collection of over 2,600 works of art created over the last 150 years, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures and craft. In addition to a rich base of works by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, the collection offers significant contemporary art by regional and national artists. The focus is on works relating to the landscape, and the many contemporary interpretations of that tradition.

Admission is by donation. Free 2 hour street parking is available.
