The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, Franklin Carmichael, who was born in Orillia. Now in its 15th 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.

All media/approaches are most welcome.
