TOM-regTo enhance the role of Tom Thomson Art Gallery as a major cultural attraction for the City, the Gallery Board is proposing to move the Gallery from a department of the City to its own corporate status.

Board Chair, Linda Myles-Gallinger, and Board Member, Jeff Sziklai, will facilitate the meeting. Members of City Council as well as Gallery staff will be in attendance. By attending, residents and key stakeholders will have the opportunity to discuss ideas, ask questions, and help create the best plan possible.

TOM-show-regThe TOM invites you to join us at the opening of our new shows on Sunday September 21 from 2-4pm.

Admission is by donation; all are welcome. These exhibitions run until January 11, 2015.

Two of these shows reflect the theme of Canadian Spirit 2014: If It Weren't for the War. From May through October 2014, the TOM and partner organizations, individuals and businesses have been collaborating to mark the significant anniversaries of the First and Second World Wars and in particular, the effect war had on the home front. Canadian Spirit is a collaborative, annual program initiated by the TOM in 2012.
