The launch of the W.J. Hopkinson website has been covered by the media.
The Haliburton County Echo newspaper published a story about the new online art gallery on Sept. 6, called Long lost paintings of Haliburton landscapes find a home.
Haliburton was probably William John Hopkinson’s favourite place to paint and the area was the subject of dozens of his paintings, so it was natural that the Echo would have interest in the story.

The Barrie Examiner published a story called Late artist underappreciated on Sept. 27, on the new website, interviewing W.J. Hopkinson’s grandson, Dave Forsythe, who lives near Barrie.

Another story ran in The Highlander, another Haliburton newpaper, on Sept. 1, 2016.
