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.
