Located in the centre of Sarnia’s downtown cultural district, a block from the waterfront, the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery offers an eclectic range of exhibitions, tours, lectures and programs. Housed in the architecturally significant Thom building (also known as the Saks building), the gallery’s permanent collection comprises some 1,200 Canadian historical and contemporary works. Holdings include signature canvases by members of the seminal Group of Seven. Franklin Carmichael, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. Macdonald and A.Y. Jackson – heavyweights of Canadian landscape – are well represented. Choice abstract work includes Painters Eleven founder, Harold Town’s towering canvas, Monument to a Politician (1956). Revolving exhibitions from the gallery’s permanent collection open a window on the past and help preserve and present Canada’s heritage.
