On Tuesday, Feb. 21 our Club Night will feature Sue and Jim Waddington who will share the amazing stories of their explorations and discoveries in the deep Ontario bush, ongoing since 1968, finding the original painting sites of over 200 Group of Seven paintings. In 2010 they were involved in the McMichael Collection of Canadian Art’s show “Following in the Footsteps of the Group of Seven” in Kleinburg. Late in 2011 they presented a fascinating talk to the Toronto Watercolour Society on this subject as well. We were thrilled to hear that they would be able to share their experiences with us and look forward to this wonderful evening. All sections are contributing to this event.

Reservations are required in the office by noon on Thursday, Feb. 16. 6 p.m. for 6:30. Price $25.
