Our vast and varied landscape is as unique and diverse as the Canadians who inhabit it. The beauty of our landscape can be a source of national pride, but our land is also going through many challenges such as climate change, land claims, and loss of natural habitats. Tradition Transformed asks the question, what does the Canadian landscape mean to you.

This annual juried exhibition was created in recognition of landscape artist and Group of Seven member, Franklin Carmichael, who was born in Orillia. Now in its 22nd year, this juried exhibition calls on artists from across the country to submit work that reimagines the Canadian landscape through the artist’s chosen medium, including but not limited to drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and media arts.

Entry fee: There is an application fee of $35 (plus HST) per submission. Artists can submit up to 3 times, $35 (plus HST) each submission, one image for each entry.

Jurors’ Prize – $1500
Kevin J. Batchelor Emerging Artist Award – $1000
