Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition:
Tradition Transformed
September 23 – November 26, 2017
Reception: September 29 | 7—9pm

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 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.

OMAH is pleased to welcome artist and Georgian College School of Design and Visual Arts faculty member, Scott Sawtell and Associate Curator/Registrar of the Maclaren Art Centre, Renee van der Avoird,  who were this year's jurors.
