OMAH is mounting a special campaign to bring a rare Franklin Carmichael watercolour to Orillia – the birthplace of the storied Group of Seven artist.


OMAH board member Doug Frost has pledged $20,000 – half the cost of the artwork – and OMAH is working diligently to raise the other $20,000.


The story began earlier in the year, when Wil Kucey, consultant for the Canadian Fine Arts gallery in Toronto, contacted Frost to tell him that a Carmichael watercolour that had been in California for several years was coming up for sale.
