An exhibition inspired by the OCAD University Drawing and Painting Trip to Awenda Provincial Park 

Exhibition Dates November 20-December 1st

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 22, 5-8pm

Location: Ada Slaight Galleries, 100 McCaul Street, 2nd floor

On September 22nd, seventy of our OCAD University students went on a trip to be inspired in the landscape. 

Painting and drawing en plein air, at Awenda Provincial Park, students created work during that day and subsequently,  to later exhibit in a group exhibition in the Ada Slaight Galleries. 

Awenda has a deeply rooted artistic tradition that encompasses a number of iconic figures in Canadian art history. Tom Thomson painted the parks Giant's Tomb Island, and a number of the Group of Seven also fostered connections with the Southern Georgian Bay area. 

The Awenda Inspired trip is designed to celebrate the park's rich art heritage and provide an opportunity for students and the general public to interact.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
