From Our Collection

Archive Exhibits

The museum art collection has grown to include over 300 works acquired over 37 years. Former Director Lydia Ross Alexander recognized the need to collect works from Northeastern Ontario artists. She persuaded the City of Timmins to support this project, as many of the pieces acquired could be housed in public buildings. Parts of the collection today can be seen at City Hall, various offices within the corporation and at the Golden Manor. We have scoured our vault and present to you a few pieces that include works by Canadian artists Robert Pilot and Ivan Wheale, as well as works by local and regional artists. We have also chosen a work by artist T.P. Carroll, completed on the Grassy River in 1924.
