Welcome Home to Orillia

Orillia Museum of Art & History 30 Peter Street South, Orillia

In our upcoming exhibit, “Welcome Home to Orillia,” we interviewed eleven individuals from six continents who immigrated to Orillia to ask them these questions.  Their incredible stories of resilience and courage in the face of changing circumstances will be displayed at OMAH, alongside some of the objects they chose to bring with them.  Come visit the museum to learn about the amazing stories of people living right here in our community.  “Welcome Home to Orillia,” coming soon to OMAH.

Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed

This is OMAH’s 20th year hosting this juried exhibition that honours the legacy of Group of Seven member, Franklin Carmichael, who was born in Orillia in 1890. This year, Jurors Martha Reeve; Art Advisor and Deborah Farquharson; Interdisciplinary Artist, had the very tough task of sifting through submissions by almost 400 incredibly talented artists of all mediums from across Canada. After weeks of careful consideration the jury has selected 54 pieces from 53 artists. Tradition Transformed marks the ever-changing landscape in the artist’s mind, fulfilling the Group of Seven’s aim to create a uniquely Canadian identity. Introducing the artists of the 2021/2022 Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed.
