Open Juried Call – Drawing: An Exhibition

Open Juried Call: Drawing: An Exhibition 

From the cave dwellers of Lascaux to the e-Drawings of our present century, the urge to draw is innate and impulsive.

Artists are invited to submit for consideration up to two drawings that stretch the boundaries of the medium. Be expansive and imaginative with the potential of this expressive form of communication. All types of drawing are welcome: figurative gestures; recordings of history and memory; two-, three- and multi-dimensional as well as site-specific works.

Gallery space is limited. Individual pieces must not exceed 48″ in width.

Two pieces may be submitted for $50 fee (via PayPal).

Orillia Museum of Art & History

Address: 30 Peter Street South, Orillia, ON L3V5A9  Phone: +1 (705) 326-2159

Exhibition Date:  November 8, 2019 – January 22, 2020

 ​Reception: November 8, 2019 7–9pm

The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, and Orillia native Franklin Carmichael. Now in its 18th 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.
