Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed
October 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – January 17, 2021 @ 3:00 pm
This is an annual event in Orillia – a city 90 minutes north of Toronto. I am flattered that my work has now been accepted three times over the past few years. The venue is the Orillia Museum of Art and History – an outstanding gallery in one of Orillia’s historic downtown buildings. The shows are always impeccably curated and installed. Lots of variety in terms of media, technical process and concept – but exquisitely executed. Definitely worth an afternoon road trip.
I am showing one of my pieces, “Fish Bite Just Before The Rain” from my series “Band Aids for Worrisome Times”.
The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, Franklin Carmichael, who was born in Orillia. Now in its 19th year, this juried show calls on artists from across the country to submit work that embraces, challenges, comments, critiques, echoes, challenges, 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.
