Out of the Woods: Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven features works from the Art Gallery of Alberta collection by Tom Thomson and the members of one of Canada’s most influential artistic collectives. Showcasing both rarely-seen and familiar works, this exhibition welcomes viewers to enjoy Group of Seven works done ‘out of the woods’, beyond the Ontario landscape, from Caribbean seascapes, cities and cottage scenes to portraits, prairies and prints. AGA Exhibitions’ Manager and Out of the Woods Curator Laura Ritchie leads visitors through the exhibition during this 45-minute walkthrough. Discussion focuses on major themes, research and connections to other AGA exhibitions.
