Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT) and Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation (HGTF) are excited to announce the opening of our annual Art Project.

This year’s project is being launched in celebration of the sixth anniversary of the opening of Campbell House on August 5, 2014.

Trish Rawn, Interim Executive Director shared, “From the beginning, it was decided that Campbell House should have its hallways decorated with art created by local artists that reflect the unique beauty and landscape of our Georgian Bay home. The response to HGT’s Art Project has been so positive and we appreciate the support of the entire local arts community in keeping Campbell House looking so animated and colourful. This year, in recognition of the sixth anniversary of Campbell House, we are proud to launch our online Art Project at” 

John S. Cowan, Curator of the annual Art Project agreed: “As always, our local artist community has responded amazingly to the annual HGT Art Project and a record 35 artists are represented in what we are calling the 2020 COVID Collection."

"As you might imagine, this year our annual update was interrupted by the restrictions of COVID-19. So, our 2020 Art Project will be featured only on the HGT website. For now, the 2019 Art Project continues to be enjoyed by staff, patients and families on the walls within Campbell House,” explained Janet Fairbridge HGT Foundation Director.

She added, “All of the Art Project pieces are for sale. All sales are to be organized by the interested buyer and they may contact the artist directly through information found on our website. Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation will neither benefit from nor be involved in any way with sales. We are thrilled to be able to help support the talented artists in our community in this manner.”

The 2020 COVID Collection showcases 40 works chosen by a jury of local artists and hospice volunteers.

In April 2021, the eighth HGT Call to Artists will go out and from the submissions received another edition of the Art Project will be chosen and hung.

If you would like to have your art considered by the jury in April 2021, please contact John Cowan at
