The original Ojibway Hotel, located on Ojibway Island in the Archipelago of Pointe au Baril, Ontario, Canada began the tradition of inviting the local community to show their art in the early 1960’s. Since then, the show has been fuelled by volunteer energy and has evolved to be a widely anticipated annual event today featuring over 80 artists from the community and beyond.
The theme of The North has always driven the aesthetic of the show. It reflects our passionate connection with the environment and immerses us in new visions and interpretations of the place we all love through a wide variety of genre. It is a key source of fundraising for the Ojibway Club and an opportunity for artists to show their work in a supportive setting.
35% of all sales go to the Ojibway Club.
Please join us in supporting these talented artists.
Welcome to the 2022 Ojibway Club Art Show – a yet-again reimagined version of the art show that has been hosted at the Ojibway Club for almost 60 years. This year we are hosting a hybrid version, with an online gallery and sales, and a small in-person show, exhibiting samples of most of the art you will see online. We are also hosting an in-person Marketplace at the Club over the weekend of Aug 5-7th, for artisans of smaller items, which we hope you will attend. Once again, this is a new adventure for us as we make efforts to continue this important tradition in our community.
This show features over 80 mostly Canadian artists, from painters to multimedia artists, whose work has been inspired by Georgian Bay’s shapes and sizes and unique outdoor spaces. We are delighted to support them and thank them for choosing to support our special summer place, the Ojibway Club.
Sincere thanks to the following individuals whose efforts made this show possible: David Barrett, Charlie Cooke, Kirsten Cooke, Mimi Crawford, Kim Darlington, Adam Helmers, Trudy Irvine, Janet Irving, Jen Kernaghan, Alana Macdonald, Wendy Massie, Kara McIntosh, Emily Sorell and Vicki Tremayne. My sincere thanks to all.
Enjoy the show…support Canadian artists and our Ojibway Club.
