We drove a considerable distance to come to see this gallery, which was meant to be a highlight of our vacation. It was our only reason to visit Owen Sound. Imagine our disappointment when we discovered, after paying our admission 'donation', that the entire Tom Thomson collection had been removed to be photographed! Why would a curator not have arranged for at least half of the works to be photographed at a time while leaving the other pieces hung to be enjoyed by visitors, and then switch it up? Tourists would be happier, and likely more understanding. seeing 50% of the Thomson works rather than none at all.
The remainder of the collection by other artists, however, was beautifully displayed and we greatly enjoyed the space and our time with these pieces. Lovely gift shop. Call ahead to make certain that what you are planning to see is indeed there.
