Oriland Exhibition

The Oriland exhibition was held in Downtown Toronto, on School Break, the third week of March. On display, there was one of Kingdoms of Oriland, full of amazing creations: Sun Castle, goblins and wizards, dragons, princesses, trees and flowers, sailing ships and sea creatures, even a dinosaur skeleton and so much more!

ORILAND Exhibition The podium for the Oriland Kingdom was 3x2 meters (composed of 4 tables draped with cloth) and was set up in the wide open area of the library with good natural lighting from huge windows. Jean Lee, head of St. James Town Branch, was very cooperative during the installation - for that we sincerely thank her
From Exhibition Guestbook: "Fabulous work done! If it can be shown to schools will be great too!! I'm just amazed how you did it so beautifully."
ORILAND Exhibition The main prominent sight of the show was the Sun Castle, the tall paper fairy-tale wonder (40 inches or 1 meter high), constructed from 350 pieces of paper, without using glue or cutting, and needless to say, nor was everything else presented on this origami display.
From Exhibition Guestbook: "Thank you so much for sharing your magical paper works with us. It is so full of life and cheerful, happy energy!"
ORILAND ExhibitionAnother conspicuous sight was the tall Sailing Ship 'Moonlight', 32 inches (80 cm) long and about the same high, which is folded from 350 sheets of selected papers to complement the whole boat design. The Ship is even manned with the crew of little origami people!
From Exhibition Guestbook: "Thanks so much for the wonderful show! You are both amazingly talented! Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future. - Knot"
ORILAND exhibition The Origami land from Oriland Sea to the Castle area was settled with magicians and goblins, where they had the magic bazaar, featuring magical objects, carpers, mirrors, shoes etc. Also next to the Sea port there were magician’s whimsical houses
From Exhibition Guestbook: "We are truly amazed and impressed with the wonderful work displayed here today. It is hard to believe that no gluing or cutting took place. This is a true art form. We are in awe! - Bev+Alun Morgan"
