The Zephyr Artists are an informal group of local artists who, not wanting to lose the legacy, emerged from the closing of the member-operated Zephyr Gallery on Peter Street. The gallery had been an artist-run organization since 2000, and contributed much to the shape and face of art in Orillia today. The Zephyr Artists endeavour to highlight members’ work through various exhibitions throughout the community. The Everchanging Vitality of Art expresses the energy and creative expression of this diverse group of artists.

Through all of time our local landscapes have constantly been changing... and continue to change, annually, daily. David Hawke has had opportunity to be out of doors most of his life, and with camera in hand has recorded many facets of our natural world including vistas both dynamic and subtle.

 A photograph is a recording of 1/250th of one second of the entire time passage; these images journal a moment in a place within a landscape.

These 26 images are also captured memories of David's escapes where, for a moment, the landscape became his entire world.

Winter in Orillia is much like winter in many other Canadian communities. With the cold and the snow comes the opportunity for the participation in many winter sports that the area offers.  From hockey games to hitting the slopes for skiing or snowboarding, or watching your favourite figure skater completing gravity defying jumps to throwing curling rocks towards the button – Orillia is in a flurry of winter sports activities for all ages.

Hockey bonds the people of our nation.  Although our nation is diverse regionally and geographically, hockey unites us from sea to sea to sea.  This exhibition will cross cultural, physical and gender barriers in a showcase of defining moments in established hockey history.  Themes and stories will be animated by memorabilia, objects, and art from the Hockey Hall of Fame.  This exhibition has received funding from Canadian Heritage and sponsorship from Casino Rama Resort.
