It is a large, bright space where several FASM members display their artwork, prints, greeting cards and more on a monthly and rotating basis.  

 

It is also where you can see “artists in action” during Tuesday Alcohol Inks and Thursday Pastels, and also where events are held from time to time, such as workshops and artist receptions.

Volunteers welcome!

          Located in the heart of town, Milton Mall is still one of the best locations for Miltonians of all ages to shop, browse, meet, and participate in community events in a bright, cheerful, and active space.  Their commitment to hosting various community-oriented activities, together with our long-standing partnership with them, has given us a vibrant home where we can work, connect with the community, and display the artwork of our ever-growing membership in this unique space.

          Drop in, browse, or take a break in our lounge area – it is a warm and welcoming space.  You just might find that special gift for a friend or a keepsake from one of the FASM community murals.  

          Whether to shop or browse, chat or rest, paint or watch, pop by soon and see what we are all about.

We are very pleased to have invited Jim and Sue Waddington, Authors of the best selling book “In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven”

Date:  Monday October 28th 
Venue: FASM at the Mall Gallery, 55 Ontario Street.
Time: 7pm
Cost: $10. per person – (all proceeds will be donated to the Waddington’s choice: the Sudbury Art Gallery)

The Back Story:

Jim and Sue Waddington began a 36-year journey of discovery in July of 1977, which has culminated with “In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven.”

They were determined to locate, document, and photograph the actual landscapes that inspired and influenced the Group of Seven. They embarked on an artistic expedition that carried them across Canada.

About the Book:

“Richly illustrated with reproductions of the original artwork by the Group of Seven and augmented with expressive text and absorbing photographs of the actual locations where these legendary paintings were created, the Waddington’s have created a journal of enduring images that document the lush landscapes, rugged countryside, and wondrous waters that help define us as Canadians,” as said in a release issued by the gallery.
“Selling over 7,500 copies nation-wide, In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven explores and details the Waddington’s adventures, inviting us to travel with them into the wild, woods, and rivers and come face to face with the allusive muses that enlightened and enriched this renowned group of artists.”
 
The Waddingtons will present an informative talk accompanied by a slide show.
