Echoes Of The Flame: Art Inspired By The Lyrics Of The Tragically Hip

NEW Limited-Edition The Tragically Hip select prints are now exclusively available at Frameworth!

REPOST: Song-Word Art House presents one-of-a-kind art exhibition, Echoes Of The Flame: Art Inspired by the Lyrics of The Tragically Hip, opening July 8 and running through August 28 at Bracebridge Hall. 

Toronto, ON (June 7, 2022) – Today, LA-based Song-Word Art House is thrilled to announce Echoes Of The Flame: Art Inspired By The Lyrics Of The Tragically Hip, a one-of-a-kind art exhibition opening July 8 at Bracebridge Hall located in the heart of the majestic lake district of Muskoka, ON and running through August 28th. Produced in partnership with The Tragically Hip, Echoes Of The Flame is an eighteen piece collection of original artwork created by internationally acclaimed artists from Canada, Europe and the United States and includes a mixture of paintings, sculpture and mixed media artworks. A portion of the revenue generated from the sale of the original artwork will be donated to the Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na language and cultural centre, located on a Mohawk reservation in Tyendinaga, Ontario. Funds will be used to help build a school dedicated to teaching students their Indigenous language.

The artworks curated for Echoes Of The Flame have an epic feel to them, incorporating lyrics selected from The Tragically Hip’s vast catalogue into the actual pieces, marrying the power of the written word with the beauty of the image. The 17x JUNO Award winning band and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees oversaw the artist selection process for the exhibition, ensuring that Canadian artists make up 75% of the roster including representation from Indigenous creators and French Canadians. 

 
“We are so pleased and gratified to see the music we created, transformed into new artistic expressions…like seeds we scattered that have taken root and are now in bloom,” say The Tragically Hip. “We are also pleased to be able to donate proceeds from this show to help build a language and cultural centre on the Mohawk reserve at Tyendinaga.”
 
Contributors to the exhibition include producer Daniel Lanois (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, U2), veteran Canadian musician Tom Wilson (Junkhouse, Lee Harvey Osmond), Toronto’s Peter Horvath, up-and-coming artist Dina Roudman and more. Fans of The Hip may also recognize the name of the Kingston based artist Simon Andrew, whose artwork graced the cover of the band’s 1994 album Day For Night.
 
“To the recipient of my Purple Minded Dream; I’ve been through many shades and colours with the members of The Tragically Hip. Let it be purple this time. It’s an honour to be involved with this gesture of kindness.” – Canadian record producer, guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Daniel Lanois 
 
Toronto native and Song-Word Art House’s co-founder Joe Woolf sees the music-inspired collections he curates as “the fine art version of the tribute album”. Woolf explains that they chose Muskoka because it represents the kind of magical place where The Tragically Hip’s songs impacted so many lives, including his own. “Growing up in Canada, I have so many great memories of hanging out by the lake or campfire with friends or family, listening to The Tragically Hip; it forms a big part of the soundtrack of my life in those days.  Seeing how these incredibly talented artists interpret the magical and often mysterious imagery evoked by those lyrics, reinvents and re-energizes the emotional connection I have with the songs I’ve known and loved for decades. Fans of The Tragically Hip are going to absolutely love this art collection and we can’t wait to show it to them”.
 
The full collection will be available for viewing and purchase at Bracebridge Hall starting July 8th, and in celebration of this unique fine art tribute, a limited edition run of 150 prints of each artwork in the collection will be offered for sale on a first come first serve basis. Beginning today, select originals and prints (previewed below) will also be available for sale online, with more rolling out over the course of the exhibition, with the full collection available for viewing and purchase July 21st.
