Remember Hastings’ lad Julian Beecroft ? He went off to Canada in August to visit the locations where the highly regarded Group of Seven painters worked [‘Voice’ #80, August 2011]. Julian travelled coast-to-coast (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia), taking 5,000 photos along the way – part of his journey, Killarney Provincial Park – by canoe. This is the first time in decades that these pictures have visited the UK, so if you love landscape painting, the opportunity to see them at Dulwich Picture Gallery is not to be missed. The exhibition runs until 8th January. You might want to whet your appetite by visiting his extensive blog at www.dulwichonview.org.uk which includes many superb pictures (example by Tom Thomson, left) and a not-to-be-missed stunning video of Canadian landscapes.
