Martin KImbleMartin Kimble, along with fellow atist Allen Smutylo were two of a small group of young artists who had recently graduated from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto in 1968 and in 1969 they created a working artists gallery studio, Cirle Arts, in Tobermory, Ontario.

About Circle Arts... Circle Arts offers 50 continuous seasons of Canadian fine art and creations inspired by the unique environment and spirit of the Bruce Peninsula. Today, gallery partners, Glenda Burrell is a former drama teacher and arts department head and Arlene Kennedy was the Director of the McIntosh Gallery at The University of Western Ontario from 1989 to 2008. Also at Circle Arts, is Simon White, a web designer and a former theatre set designer and production manager.

In January 2006, Glenda Burrell and Simon White joined Arlene Kennedy as the new owners of Circle Arts. Together they share a passion for the unique nature of the Bruce Penninsula and the artists that are also inspired by its diverse and dynamic character. Circle Arts has recently celebrated 50 years as a working gallery in 2019.

The Circle Arts story began in 1969 when Gale Jensen - a professor of Social Sciences at the University of Michigan - persuaded six students of the Ontario College of Art (Known as OCAD today) to build an art gallery and studio on land he owned in Tobermory, Ontario. The group stayed in the small town on the picturesque Bruce Peninsula for the summer, producing oil paintings, watercolours, wood block prints, sculptures, silk screens, textiles, jewelry and pottery.

They returned to Toronto to finish their studies at the end of that summer, then moved to Tobermory permanently the following spring. The Circle Arts story encompasses elements of the times and its locales. It is the story of youthful enthusiasm and artistic maturity that started with a sound business sense and high creativity. More than anything else, it is the story of a commitment to Canadian art, and to those who produce and support it. Photo courtesy of Martin Kimble.
