Our Featured Pieces

Raised on Toronto’s Centre Island, Thomas Sherlock Hodgson (1924-2006) took part in art classes that were organized by Group of Seven member Arthur Lismer at what was then known as the Art Gallery of Toronto, now the Art Gallery of Ontario.  He was a member of the renowned Painters Eleven (Toronto, 1953), a group of Canadian avant-garde abstract painters that helped to establish Modern art in Canada.
