Colours In The Storm is the story of Tom Thomson, one of Canada’s best loved painters. Thomson’s landscapes of Algonquin Park such as “The West Wind”, “The Jack Pine”, and “Northern River” are among the most famous paintings ever done in Canada. But Thomson is perhaps as famous for the controversy of his death in 1917 as he is for the strength of his paintings. He died in mysterious circumstances in the waters of Canoe Lake, and in the years since his death there has been endless speculation about who may have murdered him. The show is about one man’s struggle to realize his own potential: about the recognition of a talent in oneself, and of the determination and obsession with realizing that talent or potential. Colours In The Storm captures the beauty of our north and speaks passionately to our Canadian hearts and spirits.
