A large gallery space here contains a wall full of paintings. At least one of them is from a member of the Group of Seven, but most are done by other Canadian artists. This wall stands across from a set by the Group.
And before them in the centre of the room is a large First Nations canoe, another example of blending together artistic sensibilities from different cultures.
J.E.H. MacDonald was another member of the Group of Seven. This 1921 painting, titled The Solemn Land, depicts the Algoma region of Northern Ontario.
Another painting, glimpsed at far left in the second of these photos today, is another Franklin Carmichael painting. The Upper Ottawa, Near Mattawa dates to 1924, and depicts a landscape in the Ottawa River Valley, a good three hours or so drive northwest of Ottawa.
Displayed close by is a small sculpture, The Storm, circa 1920. Walter Allward was known for his sculptural work, albeit on a much larger scale, like the Vimy Ridge Memorial in France.
