OMAH kicked off the festive season with Festival of Trees this past Saturday. We had the generous donation of hardboard from Home Hardware for over 90 artists to create just over 100 original works of art. We are truly thankful for the talent and creativity from the participating artists. 75 works went to good homes and helped the museum raise $5000 towards community programmes.
OMAH is featuring members, volunteers, donors, volunteers,and artists on the blog. This post's feature is Joan Berndt. She is a volunteer and a member of OMAH. Joan Berndt has been a docent at the Orillia museum of art & History since 2017.
$20,000 raised in support of OMAH's programming for at-risk children and youth
We want to extend a special thank you to all of OMAH’s friends and sponsors who attended and supported The Mariposa Gala hosted at Lakehead University. Our marquee gala has raised over $20,000 which will be invested towards our programming to serve at-risk children and youth, providing them with the tools they need to thrive and succeed.
The Orillia Museum of Art & History has been named the 2018 recipient of the Ontario Society of Artists Cleeve Horne Purchase Award and used the award to acquire two works by local artist Tanya Cunnington.
