In 1969 K Brothers Art Shoppe and Gallery was established as an artist materials, picture framing shoppe and art gallery at 242 Algonquin Ave. In 1976 K Bros Art was purchased by George Maroosis who moved it into the present larger site at 232 Algonquin Ave in 1979. In the gallery we have specialized in original Canadian Art with native art being a major feature. In the early years we featured art by the founder of the Woodland School of Art Norval Morrisseau and his brothers-in-law Joshim and Goyce Kakegamic. See references in the Canadian Dictionary of Artists compiled by Colin S. MacDonald. At the same time our contemporary Canadian Artists included such notables as Peter Fromme-Douglas, David Jean, Richard Karon, John Kinnear, Jamie Lindsay, Julius Marosan, Steve Oestertag (Stevens), Ernest Taylor and Arto Yuzbasian.
