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.

I am surfacing after a 6 month health issue, that has been long and arduous, but has also provided me with creative fodder for my upcoming show: “INSIDE MY WORLD: LARGE AND SMALL” at the Double Door Gallery, in Anten Mills, just north of Barrie, Ontario. The opening celebration will be from 6 – 9 pm, Friday, September 6th. Weekend hours are 12 – 4 pm. I will not be at the gallery on Saturday, Sept. 7th (family wedding), but should be there every other day the show is open.
My home studio will also be open on the Thanksgiving Weekend, from 11 am to 4 pm., Saturday October 12 – Monday October 14. Look for the red and white “Open Studio” road signs near 5253 Vasey Rd., Midland, ON L4R 4K3.
Please email or phone me with any comments or questions you may have.
Cheers! I hope to see you at the show and/or Open House.

Janet Read @ Lee Contemporary Mar. 24-Apr. 14
Embers of the sky, Janet’s first show at Lee Contemporary consists of works on linen, canvas and acrylic on paper. The work is inspired by light over water and the deep colours of sky and water as they reflect and amplify each other.
Light and dark in saturated colour animate my work. Saturated deep blues allude to the mysterious depths of water and vivid agitated and gestural painted skies to the light of the air. These elements collide and mirror each other in a mode of atmospheric abstraction, a term coined by Carla Garnet, curator, to describe this work in my solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Peterborough in 2013.
