Please Use OMAH's Back Entrance This Winter!
Monday November 18, 2019 at 4:58pm
Due to falling ice and snow, The City of Orillia has closed off our front entrance and the alleyway beside Tiffins Creative Centre. For your safety, we ask that you please use the back entrance to OMAH. The back entrance is located by the Mariposa Market parking lot on Colborne Street East. Parking in municipal lots is free from Friday, November 15- January 5th, so you will not have far to walk in a winter wonderland to get to your car.
Don’t let the weather stop you from experiencing the art & history that OMAH has on display. OMAH is still open Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sundays 1-4pm. We currently have 4 exciting exhibitions open for viewing.
Fibre Content showcases 90 works by 60 artists from across Ontario in fabric, paper, yarn, thread and mixed media materials. The goal of the exhibition is to raise the profile, awareness and acceptance of fibre art as a fine art form. A selection of 40 of these pieces form a smaller version that travel to museums and galleries across the province. This exhibition is organized by Fibrations.
The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed is in its 18th year at OMAH. Featuring works of art from over 30 artists from all across Canada. The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, and Orillia native Franklin Carmichael.
We also have Industrial Legacy: A History of Dorr-Oliver Long Limited. The history of Dorr-Oliver-Long Ltd. is one that is full of family connection, perseverance, and stories of how its founders and employees contributed to the local community. At its height, Dorr-Oliver-Long Ltd.employed over 800 people and was a driving force in Orillia’s economy.
Lastly, Ingrid Mayrhofer’s exhibition “After Krieghoff” comprises a series of stereoscopic photo and video compositions using Mayrhofer's own photographs of landscapes and objects together with skies appropriated from a Cornelius Krieghoff painting. The imagery responds to the ambiguity of the photographic record, adjusting the landscape much like Krieghoff did through genre painting.
