April in Algonquin

After visiting the Tom Thompson Art Gallery for the first time I feel I owe you a few comments about who Thompson was. To keep it simple, Tom Thompson was in my mind Canada's greatest artist. Often mistaken as a member of the Group o Seven, Canada's first art school, Tom was actually the chief predecessor of that group. He grew up in the village of Leith, just a few miles down the bay from Owen Sound, hence the gallery's name and presence in Owen sound.
