Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed

September 23 – November 26, 2017
opening remarks and awards presentation: Friday, September 29 7-9pm

The Mulcahy Family Gallery

Orillia Museum of Art & History
30 Peter Street South, Orillia, ON L3V 5A9

The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, and Orillia native Franklin Carmichael. Now in its 16th year, this juried show calls on artists from across the country to submit work that embraces, challenges, comments, critiques, echoes, re-works or strengthens images, perceptions and interpretations of Canadian landscape through the artist’s chosen medium. Heavily rooted in Carmichael’s beliefs on traditionalism and classical modes of artistic expression, Carmichael himself was very much invested in contemporary artistic styles having been inspired by his native Canadian surroundings.

Join us September 29th for the exhibition's Opening Reception for the presentation of the Jurors’ Prize (value: $2000), sponsored in part by Lakehead University, The Kevin J. Batchelor Emerging Artist Award (value: $1000) and The Quarrington Arts Society Award for Multidisciplinary work (value: $500).

This project brought together artistic entrepreneurs who engaged with the museum collection for inspiration and have created hand-made, one-of-a-kind works of art!

This exhibition will feature the selected objects from the collection alongside the original work of art. The artists will then create a production line from the original work of art that will be sold exclusively through OMAH starting November 1.

About the Orillia Museum of Art & History

OMAH is Orillia’s cultural hub. We hold a mirror up to Orillia and areas so we can stimulate and guide discussions around culture. We make culture matter. Since we are not bound by a specific area of the town’s history or by a specific presentation format, we reflect the full range of Orillia culture back to itself and to export that reflection to other markets. OMAH inspires creativity and celebrates history.

Since 1999, OMAH has been the steward of the community’s art, history and culture by being actively engaged in the community and responsive to its needs. The museum creates exhibits and programs that will inspire the community to explore, experience and engage with art, local history and culture, as well support Orillia’s growing arts community by providing facilities for workshops, education, professional development in addition to providing grants, scholarships, bursaries and prizes to assist study and recognize merit in the arts and history.
