Opening of “Honouring the Past” and Community Mosaic Mural Reveal

Honouring the Past

After months of planning and painting, the Porcupine Art Club’s 75th Anniversary Exhibit: Honouring the Past opens at the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre (325 Second Avenue, Timmins) on Wednesday November 30, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.!

Honouring the Past will be in the Grey Gallery of the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre.

The Big Reveal!

On Canada Day, 2022, members of the community joined us for our RoyalTEA and Paint Party in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee. In addition to tea and cookies, a visit with artists, and local entertainment, guests were invited to paint tiles that would be assembled together in mosaic mural, celebrating Timmins and the anniversaries of the Porcupine Art Club and the Queen’s reign. Only a handful of people knew what the scene would look like, and now after five months, the mural will be revealed to the community!
