As a non-profit, public art gallery, the Thunder Bay Art Gallery exhibits, collects, and interprets art with a particular focus on the contemporary artwork of Indigenous and Northwestern Ontario artists. The Gallery advances the relationship between artists, their art, and the public, nurturing a life-long appreciation of contemporary visual arts among visitors to Thunder Bay and community members of all ages.
Appraisals/Authentication of Art
The Thunder Bay Art Gallery is unable to provide appraisals or authentication of works of art. As a public art gallery that accepts donations of art for our permanent collection, it would be a conflict of interest for us to do so. Specific professional training and experience is required to work as an art appraiser.
If you have specific questions or concerns about work by Norval Morrisseau, the Thunder Bay Art Gallery suggests that you contact one of the following appraisers:
