Painted Land: In Search of the Group of Seven with Gary & Joanie McGuffin
Saturday, June 4 | 7:30 pm | FREE
We are pleased to welcome back Canadian adventurers, award-winning authors, conservation photographers and film producers, Gary and Joanie McGuffin, for a screening of the hour long documentary, Painted Land: In Search of the Group of Seven. One would think The Group of Seven needs no introduction. Their iconic works are known to millions of Canadians, yet few are familiar with the lives of the artists themselves. Why did they choose locations in the remote, rugged wilderness of northern Ontario? Does anyone know precisely where they went?
