Click the photo above to view a full length TV Ontario film (1 hr, 11′) entitled, “Painted Land: In Search of the Group of Seven.” The film blends the art of Canada’s “Group of Seven” painters with present day visits to locations like the Algoma area near Sault Ste. Marie, Pic Island near Marathon and the Slate Islands near Terrace Bay. The last 20′ or so of the film deal with the more western locations, like the Slate Islands and Port Coldwell. The Group of Seven visited this area almost 100 years ago to paint and enjoy the area for the same reasons we live, visit, enjoy and protect this area today. Enjoy this amazing film.
