Recent MFA graduate Eryn O'Neill received the Kevin J. Batchelor Emerging Artist Award at the Orillia Museum's Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition.
The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, Franklin Carmichael, who was born in Orillia. Now in its 17th year, this juried show calls on artists from across the country to submit work that embraces, challenges, comments, critiques, echoes, challenges, 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.
The exhibition runs from September 28 – November 25, 2018
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
