Welcome to the Art Gallery of Sudbury!
Drop by the Gallery Boutique and you'll enjoy our wonderful selection of pottery, books, jewellery, art and much, much more.
We have autographed copies of Jim and Sue Waddington's book 'In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven' that has received rave reviews since the October book launch at the Gallery.
Canadian Living has recommended the book for Season's Reading - "Fans will drool over the stunning comparisons of paintings with photos of the real-life counterparts"
The Toronto Star - "This splendid book is the result of a 36-year outdoor adventure. The enterprising Waddingtons set out to find and photograph the many vantage points — often accessible only by canoe or on foot — that were painted by the Group of Seven almost a century ago. (How surprising that no one has thought to do this wonderful journey before.) The Waddingtons used a range of sleuthing techniques, including a bounty of archival information from the seven artists themselves and the art historians who have followed.
You may order your book today, at our online boutique, for pick up at the Gallery or to have it mailed to your home.
Thank you for purchasing your book through our Boutique as 100% of our sales will go to the Art Gallery of Sudbury.
The Art Gallery of Sudbury (AGS) presented the first summer long ‘Festival of the Seven’ to celebrate Franklin Carmichael and the Group of Seven’s importance to the Sudbury, Killarney and La Cloche areas in 2013. The festival featured special exhibitions, interactive excursions, musical performances, art, film, education workshops and the launch of the Waddington’s book ‘In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven’. The Festival of the Seven highlighted the significant impact the Sudbury, Killarney and La Cloche areas had on Franklin Carmichael , A.Y. Jackson, The Group of Seven and their contemporaries.
This new annual summer festival will enhance tourism offerings and provide significant economic benefits for the city through spending by the AGS and its partners and by their local and tourism visitors. The AGS invites Sudbury and area art groups, tourism partners and the business community to participate in this yearly celebration of local and Canadian art inspired by Franklin Carmichael and the Group of Seven.
”Franklin Carmichael was inspired by and celebrated the unique landscape and culture of Sudbury and district basin. We envision, as part of AGS’s initiative of renewal to create an exciting, sustainable art gallery, and launching Festival of the Seven is part of this, as it serves to celebrate this special part of Northern Ontario and its art.” - Karen Tait Peacock, AGS Director
