The late Canadian and Thunder Bay artist Susan Andrina Ross left art lovers an indelible record of images of the far north of the country; of the boreal forest, the barrens and the ice bound arctic. She painted at at time when ancient cultures were quickly submitting to the efficient appeal of westernization. The creative record that she left of a changing northern culture is a gift to us all. The Thunder Bay Museum will be launching “Ten Generations and Then and Artist: The Susan A Ross Story,” a book written by Jim Stevens, on Sunday April 15 from 2:00 to 4:00pm. An exhibition of Susan Ross’s work will accompany the launch and continue of exhibit until the end of June. There are two versions of the book a soft cover edition that sells for $20.00, 56 pages and a hardcover edition limited to 100 copies, 72 pages that sells for $75.00.
Publications will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served
