Standing Up for Ontario’s Old Growth Forest

Trees, woods, and forests can significantly alter the effects of global warming according to ecology experts.  ‘Standing Up for Ontario’s Old Growth Forest’ is a Project celebrating the 150th year of the OSA and bringing this message to the public.  Sixteen artists traveled to Temagami and  Kirkland Lake to create in the forest, use the works as a basis to create in the studio and then exhibit at the Arts and Letters Club, Toronto.

A video of the exhibition and interviews of participating artists will be posted soon.
