This family festival engages the senses through various art workshops related to exhibitions on view. Evolving around musical themes, take part in family performances and outdoor activities such as McMichael Art Battles for children and adults, led by the McMichael Youth Team; gallery tours animated by the McMichael docents; and the chance to see the progressing work of Zachari Logan, the McMichael’s newest Artist-In-Residence in the Tom Thomson Shack. This programming will be offered in partnership with JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band and Kleinburg BIA.
The McMichael’s special connection to the land is acknowledged as much through the themes underlying its art collection as through the meticulously cultivated wilderness on the McMichael grounds. The result: one of the most beautiful urban wilderness settings in Ontario is thoroughly enjoyed by en plein air artists.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada, the gallery is inviting artists to participate in the McMichael En Plein Air competition in two categories:
- Acrylic/oil on canvas
- Works on paper
