Jim and Sue Waddington in Conversation with Sharona Adamowicz-Clements

Part of Curatorial Lectures and Tours

In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven

For the last four decades, Jim and Sue Waddington have followed in the footsteps of the Group of Seven, locating the settings of hundreds of drawings, sketches, and paintings. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Killarney Provincial Park, the Waddingtons will focus exclusively on this sketching ground frequented by Franklin Carmichael, A.Y. Jackson, and A.J. Casson. Moderated by McMichael Assistant Curator, Sharona Adamowicz-Clements, this conversation will shed light on the experiences of these iconic Canadian artists and the Waddingtons — the ultimate art detectives.

Please note: Jim and Sue Waddington will be available for a book signing of In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven from 1:00 to 1:30 pm in the Grand Hall.
