The Group of Seven were a legendary group of Canadian landscape painters. The founder of the group J. E. H. Macdonald lived in a famous house, in Thornhill, Ontario. Due to the abundance of nature around the house, such as a variety of trees and garden vegetation, James Macdonald called the house the Four Elms, its rich natural environment became an inspiration for one of his greatest paintings: "The Tangled Garden".
The Four Elms house was frequented by many artists including members of the Group of Seven. At this historic house, on December 4-5, 2010, 10am – 5pm, there will be an exhibit and sale of art created by contemporary artists. Unlike the renowned Group of Seven, this group of artists are women working in a variety of artistic mediums, including jewellery, ceramics, photography and painting. Everyone is welcome to visit this remarkable house and see the fascinating art creations by these diverse women artists.
The J. E. H. Macdonald House is a 4-acre territory located at 121 Centre Street in Thornhill. The parking is available at the Holy Trinity Church at 140 Brooke St.
The exhibit will feature live music and unique works of art in the rooms of the magnificent house. Enjoy the exhibit and buy original and creative gifts for the holidays. Experience the fine tradition of Canadian art and the new works by today’s contemporary artists.
