We invite you to experience the photographic journey of our director’s chair to Lake Superior’s North Shore.

The very nature that inspired The Group of Seven’s excursions to the region between 1921 and 1928, now inspires us. As a symbol of our ability to choose, our director's chair invites you to wander alongside Canada’s most famous painters while reminding us that we each play a part to ensure their muse inspires generations to come.

The photographs below, inspired by Group of Seven paintings, were captured during three expeditions to Marathon, Ontario, Canada.

Take Your Seat is led by Randy and Spencer VanDerStarren.

 

Together, this father-and-son team has given a chair a voice; one that speaks a universal language of unity, responsibility, and individual power that is being shared with audiences around the world.

Take Your Seat and their director's chair have had the privilege of being hosted in 15 countries and counting. We extend a heartfelt thank you for being part of our chair's ongoing journey! Contact us here.
