Orillia Museum of Art and History - Carmichael Landscape Show: Tradition Transformed


Thursday, September 29, 2016 to Sunday, November 27, 2016
September 29 - November 27, 2016
Mulcahy Family Gallery
This year, the Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition marks its 15th anniversary at the Orillia Museum of Art & History. This juried exhibition was named in honour of the Group of Seven member and Canadian landscape painter Franklin Carmichael – an Orillia native, born in 1890.
The exhibition’s subtitle, “Tradition Transformed”, was added to show that the exhibition welcomes all art media and interpretations of the Canadian landscape. It also follows Carmichael’s own progressive visions and views on art. His initially stylized art was transformed to best portray and re-create Canada’s rugged wilderness during a time where the world was different than today. As a member of the Group of Sven he joined his fellow artists by interpreting landscapes as they saw them.
The exhibition will showcase unique representations of landscape with artworks that examine and re-work images of Canada’s landscape. Each piece brings a story, a question, a comment or critique. A wide variety of media transform the notion of the traditional landscape. Through the eyes of Canada’s changing and varied society, the entity of the landscape has been re-imagined. Canadian landscape is not only a place of national character and pride, but also a mirror that reflects the change, settlement, and environmental deterioration seen through the eyes of Canadians from all backgrounds and walks of life. Tradition Transformed also showcases that ever-changing landscape of the artist’s mind, fulfilling the Group of Seven’s aim to create a uniquely Canadian identity.
On behalf of the Orillia Museum of Art & History, we hope you enjoy the 2016 Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed. This juried show features a range of professional and emerging artists, with collaborations and changing views on contemporary and traditional Canadian landscapes. The works selected honour Carmichael’s legacy of progressive and unique ways of approaching the varied landscapes of Canada.
