Ojibway Art Show, 2020
This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ojibway Art Show is going to be held online. Here is what the organizing committee has to say:
"In light of these current times, we are pleased to announce that the 2020 Ojibway Art Show, originally scheduled Aug 7-9, 2020, will be reimagined as an ONLINE art show. We are committed to finding creative ways to ensure that both our artistic community and the Ojibway Club continue to be supported.
With this goal in mind, the Ojibway Art Show Committee is looking forward to launching the 2020 Ojibway Art Show Online Sale on Friday, July 31, running through until Sunday, August 9, 2020."

Jim has shown and sold his work at this show for many years. His chargers and salad bowls have been well received and he is in the process of introducing the community to his wood and epoxy pieces.
The Ojibway Hotel, located on the Ojibway Island in the Archipelago of Pointe-au-Baril, began the tradition of inviting the community to show their art in the 1960’s. Suzie Stohn, with the help of Ruth McQuaig, both cottagers, organized the first show in 1963. Since then, the show has been run by volunteers and has evolved from its initial inception to a widely anticipated annual event featuring over 60 artists from the community and beyond. The theme of “The North” has always driven the aesthetic of the show reflecting our connection with the environment and immersing us in new visions and interpretations of the place we all love through a wide variety of genre. It remains a source of fundraising for the Ojibway Club and an opportunity for community members to show their work in a familiar and supportive setting with an increasingly wide range of new and Native artists to complement the offerings.
