In pictures: Inside artist Kim Dorland's highly anticipated McMichael exhibit

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection northwest of Toronto is running about 90 of Kim Dorland's paintings - the artist's biggest public outing - in a show called "You Are Here: Kim Dorland and the Return to Painting." The exhibit features art that links past to present by recapturing landscapes made famous by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.
