The latest exhibit on the gallery walls at the Timmins Museum is called “Portraits North of 17”.

As director-curator Karen Bachmann explains, the mixed-media exhibit features eight Northern Ontario artists exploring three different themes.

“They’ve done self portraits,” she elaborates. “They’ve done some riffs on Rembrandt pieces and then they’ve highlighedt some Northern Ontario people.”

Two Timmins artists – Margo Cormier Splane and Catharine Cribbs – are among the featured artists.

“It’s just kind of a fun show for people to see what kinds of things Northern Ontario artists are doing in terms of exploring their art and what happens when you bring all kinds of artists together,” Bachmann says.

Admission is free during museum hours, seven days a week.  “Portraits North of 17” is on until July 3rd.
