Legacy Landscapes – closes on March 24th

Mark Bisset takes in the Legacy Landscapes show

This special exhibit is coming to a close on March 24th! Attend a special behind the scenes presentation or see the exhibit in person. To celebrate 25 years of land conservation, The Couchiching Conservancy is presenting “Legacy Landscapes”, an art exhibition highlighting the natural beauty of our unique properties.

Almost 40 professional landscape artists have created their impressions of Conservancy landscapes, with the Orillia Museum of Art and History partnering to provide gallery space for this impressive collection.

“Legacy Landscapes” opened Saturday, November 10, 2018 in the Carmichael Galley of the Orillia Museum of Art and History (OMAH). This special show will continue until March 24, 2019.

Many of the artworks are available for purchase, with proceeds divided between the artist, OMAH, and Couchiching Conservancy. A catalogue of the show is available for purchase.

To bring the show to a close, a special curatorial presentation will be made by David and Juliana Hawke on SATURDAY MARCH 23, 1:30 to 3:00 at the Orillia Museum of Art and History. Their illustrated talk is titled: “Legacy Landscapes: The Stories Behind the Scenes”.

The 116-page catalogue of the exhibition is available for purchase at $30.
