The Art and Science of Tom Thomson 2018

I started doing these presentations first using overhead transparencies in the early 1980's - seems more than primitive now looking back 35 years later. When PowerPoint started in the mid to late 1980's I migrated everything to the new and very powerful tool. I never looked back.

It has been a slow process to increase the awareness of the inspiration that really moved Tom Thomson and his friends - artists who would later form the Group of Seven. In recent years I have had some wonderful assistance from others like Ciel Variable. This magazine covers contemporary art processes, new image technologies and matters related to global culture. See the Ciel Variable Article. Also see the Twitter Announcement.

There is also a display with some of my research regarding Tom Thomson at the BIOSPHÈRE,
ENVIRONMENT MUSEUM . I have not seen the display but I am sure that it is very professionally done.

I am in the process of rebuilding my on-line version of some of the research into the art and science of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. The demise of the hosting website has required that I start over... it is harder to start again than it was to begin in the first place. Anyway the "rebuild" is a work in progress that I go to when not devoting my efforts to my own art or chores around Singleton. Here is the link to that site...The Art and Science of Tom Thomson 2018. I hope you enjoy it. There is some new weather research to be found there as well.

I still do some presentations but it is challenging to pry me away from the lake, my canoe(s) and my own art. Happy New Year!
