Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed
Deadline: Tuesday, August 2, 2022 Jury Results: Final week of August
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 21st year, this juried exhibition calls on artists from across the country to submit work that reimagines the Canadian landscape through the artist’s chosen medium. While Carmichael believed in traditionalism and classical modes of artistic expression, he was very much invested in contemporary artistic styles having been inspired by his native Canadian surroundings.
The landscape is a place of unique national character and pride for Canadians of different and unique backgrounds, but is also a mirror that reflects change, settlement and environmental deterioration. Tradition Transformed marks the ever-changing landscape of the artist’s mind, fulfilling the Group of Seven’s aim to create a uniquely Canadian identity.
All media/approaches are most welcome.
Entry fee: There is an application fee of $35 (plus HST) per submission. Artists can submit up to 3 times with one image for each entry.
