Recreation of 'Autumn Garland' by Tom Thompson
Huntsville, Ontario celebrates eight well-known (to Canadians, eh) artists. Walking Huntsville's main streets, it's impossible to miss recreations of art painted by the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson, Canadian Impressionists.
More Group of Seven art can be seen HERE.

I love outdoor art.
THese are beautiful. I think outdoor art adds so much interest to buildings:>)
Very artsy and impressive! I just hope that they are somewhat protected from the weather and elements??
Love it!!! Outdoor art--perfect. The Autumn art is so bright and beautiful. What a great idea. MB
Amazing and wonderful!
What a great idea - to have art on the outside. I love it!
These paintings are superb...the colors outstanding.
These are really nice murals. It's good that Canadians celebrate their artists in this way, eh? :)
Beautiful colorful paintings.
wonderful! agreat idea to return art where it belongs: in close touch with the fresh air and nature!
I love outdoor art, too! And these are fabulous -- as are your photos! Really terrific! Hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy!
What? The whole town as a gallery? How wonderful! Your photos do the paintings justice.
Very cool and so colourful.
A neat way to celebrate local artists. It makes them availbale to all.
Gorgeous! I have a book I bought of Canadian artists with very similar style but not such bright colors.
particularly love the "Jack Pine" almost has an Asian influence. Great to see this.
Impressive! Well, it's impressionism... :)
God bless you!
Beautiful artwork! These are bold and outspoken artist. Love all those intense strokes.
fantastic. nothing better than viewing art while enjoying nature.
It was my lucky day when I was introduced to The Group of Seven's artwork! These reproductions are incredible! What a wonderful post to share with us all. ~karen
Out door art? What a wonderful idea, pretty too.
EG: Very colorful works of art.
BTW: They are active kids for certain.
Oh, how nice to see while on a walk...they are such a beautiful contribution to the beauty of the neighborhood. Outdoor art...the best!
Fantastic paitings! I especially love the last one with all the bold colors :D
I keep telling myself that one of these days I am going to try painting...my daughter says she has stuff she could give me. But then I tell myself, "Self, you don't need another hobby," and I leave it at that...still.....
That's awesome, and it's wonderful that they don't get vandalized like in too many cities.
Road trip! Very cool.
I appreciate people who can paint. How clever.
Have you heard of the song, Something like proud to be Canadian. Got it from another Canadian Blogger. I think that is also very clever.
Amazing art works, all displayed out. I am worried, won't they deteriorate?
Wow, attractive public art. That's a rarity. You're lucky.
These are beautiful. What a wonderful way to display art.
Such great talents! Your photos are superb! I hope nobody steals them, if they are 24/7. I checked out the link too.
I wonder too, how they are protected from the weather.
must be very interesting to walk around with these paintings hanging on walls. but what if it rains?
a gallery outdoor ; a very good idea
Are those paintings created on canvas or other material, that is weatherproof?
Thanks for your visit. Yes the Nazis destroyed Rotterdam on 14 May 1940, without any warning. When we returned from Indonesia( then Dutch East Indies) in January 1946, the town was one ruine and my mum, who was born and bred in Rotterdam didn't recognize anything of it. I shall add some photos to my post.
I have always loved the world-class fine art by the Group of Seven. It's a pity they are not better known by non-Canadians... and perhaps younger Canadians too. So using these beautiful reproductions as urban art is simply brilliant.
Great idea. Thanks for sharing.
Love the art...so colorful & cheerful : )
Oh Wow! I love this. What a great idea.
I can see I'll have to visit Huntsville to see these pieces of art. It's especially more attractive now that all those world leaders have gone home.
Very nice love outdoor art and love the scenery of Canada
I adore outdoor art -- my kind of gallery. Those are so colorful. And actually, I'd like to see the originals sometime too.
I love outdoor art as many people see it who wouldn't go to an art gallery.
What a wonderful way to share art. We have a small town in Washington called La Conner that has sculptures everywhere to enjoy. It's so much fun to stroll around town to see them all. - Margy
I like this art. Colorful and strong.
Taking the art out of the galleries to the people is always a good thing and such wonderful works to boot.
