Gateway To the Arts

Gateway To the Arts is a grassroots organization where the tips of the flower are a mosaic of colours. Born from the realization there is no stronghold for Northern Ontario artists to exhibit their works independent of hosting a solo or curated show. Many emerging artists, whether young or old, are not at a point where a solo show is a comfortable endeavour without experiencing some growth and mentoring from a more experienced artist. Gateway To The Arts embraces the adage, ‘we all must start somewhere and it works hard to provide this opportunity in a positive and empowering environment.

Dionne Quints Museum

On May 28, 1934, five identical girls were born to Oliva and Elzire Dionne, a Franco-Ontario family in the tiny community of Corbeil, Ontario. Their births were a miracle of their time during the difficult Depression, the only quintuplets to survive more than a few days. Midwives Douilda (Donalda) Legros and Mary-Jeanne Lebel delivered the first 3 of the quintuplets, and Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe assisted with the final 2 births. The five girls – Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Émilie, and Marie – became a “good news” story in this challenging time, drawing worldwide attention to the area, and attracting 3 million people to “Quintland” to see and hear the girls at play. Hollywood told their story in 3 movies, while endorsements for commercial products became commonplace.

Reopening May 2022.

Viewings by appointment only.
