The Aesthetic of the Northland

The good people at the Network in Canadian History & Environment (NiCHE) asked me to contribute an essay to a series marking the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Canadian landscape art collective, the Group of Seven. Fresh from a boat trip up eastern Georgian Bay, through many locales where members of the Group painted during and before its formation, I was happy to oblige. The essay draws on my research for my work-in-progress on A.Y. Jackson. You can read it here.

  1. Your article on Jackson’s unknown landscape is most interesting and I feel would be a delight for readers of the FoTTSA publication, the Tiny Cottager distributed to all residents of Tiny Township. Would you be willing to have it published in the spring edition? I’m a friend of Don Breithaupt’s and read your artticle as a result of his brother, Ross, discovering it and posting on FB. I’d love to get in touch about this. mary@kx96.fm. My husband, Doug Kirk, is on the board of FoTTSA. (Federation of Tiny Township Shoreline Associations)
