Exhibition Assistance through the Ontario Arts Council

The Fort Frances Museum is no longer a Recommender Gallery for exhibition assistance. Funds designated for our area stay in our area however.  Therefore artists can apply to other recemmender galleries in northwestern Ontario for up to $1500. A committee will review your application, and if eligible, can make a recommendation to the Ontario Arts Council for approval of exhibition assistance funds.

Applications can be accessed on the Ontario Arts Council website.

Norval Morrisseau

As part of our permanent collection in our upstairs gallery, we are proud to exhibit a selection by Norval Morrisseau. Mr. Morrisseau was a local Anishinaabeg artist who achieved worldwide recognition for his work. The painting was donated years ago by local art teacher, Margaret Lichtenstein, and hung without fanfare in a non-descript frame in the Museum office. With the assistance of a grant through the Canadian Museums Association, Preserving Canadian Treasures, the piece has been professionally cleaned by a conservator and beautifully framed to draw proper attention to the genius of this renowned artist.
