The walls of the Grey Gallery at the Timmins Museum are graced this month with the creations of Northern Ontario artists.

It’s the 63rd annual juried exhibition of the Northern Ontario Art Association.

Museum director-curator Karen Bachmann says a number of the paintings were done by people in our immediate region.

“There’s people from the Porcupine Art Club obviously, the Cochrane Art Club, there’s people from Kirkland Lake, Moonbeam, so it’s a nice way to show off some of our local talent.”

Bachmann says 15 clubs belong to the regional association, and the pieces in the exhibit are “completely varied”.

“There’s all kinds of different mediums,” she elaborates. “So you’re looking at watercolours, people who are working in copper, there’s some work done on acrylics, there’s some print making, some mixed media, all kinds of different things.  So different techniques, different mediums and different expressions of creativity from northern artists.”
