Artist donates limited edition prints to Museum

The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) is thrilled to receive a donation of six limited edition prints from artist James Paddon.

Deb Sturdevant, Archivist and Heather Callaghan, Archival Assistant display                  the six prints that have been donated by James Paddon

Paddon was born and raised in Bruce County, moving from the area in his adult years. Inspired by his roots, he created six original drawings that are reminiscent of a simpler time in the County’s history.

The collection of drawings and paintings include “Barnstormer”, “High School”,
“Beachfront Dancehall”, “Last Game”, “Cobblecliff” and “Main Drag” and each is
nostalgic and shows a simpler time in Bruce County. “I like to reminisce with my
drawings and paintings and tell stories that people can relate to,” explains Jim.

“The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre is pleased to accept these prints into
the permanent collection and is grateful for the donation from James Paddon,” says
Cathy McGirr, Executive Director, Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.

When accepting donations for the Museum’s, Archives and Collections consider the history and significance that each item plays in Bruce County history, as the Collection focuses on the vibrant history of the County.

BCM&CC maintains an extensive collection of Bruce County artists’ works that are cared for and stored within the environmentally controlled storage area.
