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.

“Light has always had an emotional influence on Ron’s perception of the world. Combining this with his fascination with paper, Ronald taught himself quilling which allows his creations to take on bold and symmetrical shapes. Cutting strips of paper, he molds each form and glues them together, resulting in a large mandala shape. The simplicity of the process has allowed Ronald to produce cohesive pieces that shine with details.”
