Janet Read OSA is the recipient of the Jurors’ Prize in the Carmichael Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed at the Orillia Museum of Art and History. The show continues to January 17, 2021.
Gay Gardens is curated by Patrick DeCoste. The project’s inspiration comes from Carl Linnaeus, a Swedish scientist, who published Systema Naturae in 1735. The book describes his method of naming and classifying plants based on their sexual organs and sexual actions. Society was shocked and embarrassed by the botanical orgies happening in their back yards.
Jurors Jowenne Herrera and Patrick DeCoste, selected works from various mediums and subjects to be a part of our online garden exhibition/publication.
Here is the juror’s comment about Elizabeth Elkin’s striking work:
Elizabeth Elkin’s A Hint of Frangrance is a flower painting. We received many submissions of flower paintings but could not include all of them in Gay Gardens. Elkin’s flower painting is filled with big, bold, transluscent strokes of colour. The image of the flower almost dissolv-ing into abstraction. The balance of angular pale geometries in the background with bright organic petals in the foreground, gives a lusciousness to the painting, looking like lickable licorice and popsicles.

OSA member Diana Harding-Tucker is holding an exhibition at the Gibson Centre in Alliston from July 25 to September 8, 2019. Full details can be seen in the promo image:
I’m pleased to invite you to my upcoming exhibition opening, “The Natural Earth” on Sunday July 28, from 2-4 pm. The exhibition will be on display through to September 8, 2019 at The Gibson Centre, 63 Tupper Street West, Alliston, ON L9R 1E4
The Natural Earth – Opus I: Water is a celebration of water as the major tool in the shaping of life. Water contributes to the mechanical removal of soft and broken rocks and the scouring of ever deeper and wider lakes and rivers by glaciers. Plants and animal depend on clean, nourishing water for their livelihood. This exhibition also focuses on Water’s gift to the imagination through the play of light, shadow and reflection upon its surface – a gift that has inspired such artists as the painter Monet, and the pianist and composer, Claude Debussy.
The exhibition is open:
Tuesday to Saturday: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sunday and Monday: closed
More information can also be found online at https://gibsoncentre.com/exhibitions/the-natural-earth-Jul-2019
