Orillia Museum of Art and History Presents International Women’s Day Art Show

The Orillia Museum of Art and History presents International Women’s Day Art Show, pen March 1 – April 9, 2011 .

The International Women’s Day Art Show will be celebrating its 15th year in a new location – The Orillia Museum of Art and History. The exhibit has had a vibrant history since its inception in 1997 at Tiffin’s Creative Centre. In 2003-2004, it was held under the auspices of OMAH at its temporary location during renovations – The Coach House. Zephyr Gallery has provided the venue for the exhibit since that time.

The primary goals of the show have been to honour and celebrate women’s creative expression, as well as to provide an inclusive opportunity and venue for women’s artwork. Any female artist, high school age or older is encouraged to participate. The enthusiastic participation of dozens of women artists over the years has ensured dynamic and stimulating exhibits, exploring a variety of media. Each year the show has a theme: the theme for this year’s exhibit is “HARMONY”. Artwork is always accompanied by a brief “story”, which adds a rich dimension to each piece and the exhibit as a whole. A highlight of the show is the Artist’s Forum, in which participating artists come together to share their artwork in a fun and supportive environment.

Tours of the exhibit by art classes from high school to postsecondary will be available.

The Orillia Museum of Art & History showcases the best of Orillia and Lake Country’s culture and history through local and nationally significant exhibitions.
