Sunset Rock Studio

Sunset Rock Studio

Historic Sunset Rock Studio is home to artist Pierre AJ Sabourin. Sunset Rock  has  attracted creative spirits for hundreds of years. The breathtaking view is inspirational and to many a spiritual experience. Pierre’s  Great Uncle Charlie Lowe who lived in Owen Sound built the Sunset Rock cottage at the turn of the century to support his father’s succesful commercial fishing business.

Great Uncle Charlie told stories of bringing  Tom Thomson and his brother George  to Killarney from Owen Sound on his fishing boat the AJ Lowe during the spring supply runs. I had no reason to doubt him, both Tom and George’s paintings were hanging in the family homes in Killarney and Owen Sound. Tom Thomson’s  Iconic Jack Pine was inspired on Sunset Rock in Killarney.
