Are you an artist with plans to exhibit your work?
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.
A new season has begun. Submission this year is online, so check out new information on the Arts Council website as to how to apply.
Be a part of the creative connection in the community! Between art-related exhibits/individuals, musical endeavours, various events, festivals, drama/theatre groups, presentations, venues, etc. Fort Frances offers a variety of ways to get involved.
The Fort Frances Museum offers curriculum related Education Programs for school classes. Programs can include a video presentation, artifact discovery, or craft activity.
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.
