Presentation Manor visited McMichael Gallery on January 30 for the exhibit “A Like Vision”. In
commemoration of the centenary of that first exhibition, the McMichael Canadian Art collection
has mounted a landmark exhibition of the group’s finest pieces from the McMichael’s permanent
collection entitled “A Like Vision”: The Group of Seven at 100. The exhibition of more than 280
artworks will span five galleries and include beloved masterpieces by every member of the
Group, including Jackson’s haunting First Snow, Algoma (1919/20), Carmichael’s autumnal
symphony October Gold (1922), and Lawren Harris’ magisterial Mount Robson (1929). Alongside
these masterworks will be lesser-known pieces by the Group including a series of humorous and
impressionistic sketches by Arthur Lismer, many depicting his fellow artists, and Lawren Harris’s
unassuming Montreal River (c. 1920), the first work acquired by Robert and Signe McMichael in 1955.
