In partnership with the Huronia Museum, Wye Marsh, Midland Public Library, Midland Cultural Centre, National Film Board of Canada and the Ontario Arts Council, From Food to Monument is an extensive fall program that aims to bring further awareness to the ancestral territory of the Wendat and Ojibway people and how settlement impacted the social, political and psychological landscape of the region.

From Coast to Coast

June 22 - August 18

Historically, Canadian artists such as the West Coast painter Emily Carr, the Maritime artist Christopher Pratt, and the locally known Group of Sever have been enraptured by the idea of translating the beauty of Canadian landscapes to canvas.     Coast to Coast is a community exhibition that invited artists to submit works of art to celebrate the diversity of landscapes Canada has to offer; landscapes that sustain us, define us, and we are proud to call home.  Whether we find ourselves in the broad expanse of the prairies, amongst the sublime peaks of the mountains, or traversing the familiar islands of Georgian Bay, we are all fortunate to take comfort in knowing each vision presented here reflects our beautiful country back to us. 


As you walk through the gallery, immerse yourself in the uniqueness of each scene and consider how the land relates to your own livelihood and understanding of home.
