Painting Woodland Florals
History & heritage
Join us at the Gallery for a Painting Woodland Florals workshop presented by local Indigenous artist Lucia O’Connor Laford. Woodland art is unmistakably recognizable through the bright colours, bold lines, heavy black outlines of forms and X-ray views of people, animals, and spirits. During the workshop Lucia O’Connor Laford will be teaching how to paint woodland floral inspired by traditional woodland artists, such as Norval Morrisseau whose stunning woodland florals became immensely popular. This event requires pre-registration to attend, please contact the Art Gallery of Algoma to register or for more information.
This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.

The AGA was founded as a non-profit public art gallery and incorporated on July 7, 1975. Established by a group of dedicated volunteers and art enthusiasts, the AGA honours its roots as a community organization with its mission of celebrating culture, educating visitors, and enriching lives through the visual arts. The AGA’s vision is to be a premier visual arts institution in northern Ontario, gaining national recognition and international partnerships. With the appointment of Director Jasmina Jovanovic in August 2011, the AGA looks forward to the next phase in its evolution: establishing and implementing exciting new initiatives, becoming more involved in the national contemporary art scene, and continuing to uphold its multifaceted mandate.
