I’m delighted that I was accepted into a new gallery this month. Evanescence Gallery, in High River, is now representing my work. Owner Arlene Westen is an amazing person to speak with and learn from about art. Arlene carries a gorgeous collection of artwork, including works by Don Hamm, Pam Weber, and a host of other talented artists. Still can’t believe I get to share walls with them… thank you again Arlene!

By the way, I’d recommend a trip down to High River any day, to visit the gallery, do some shopping, have lunch and enjoy the warmth of the community members. The weekend after Arlene accepted my work, my husband and I drove down to High River for lunch and to visit Evanescence. Arlene recommended we stop at Alta Vita restaurant and oh my gosh… my spaghetti and meatballs were scrumptious.

I’m looking forward to spending many summer days painting on location in High River and doing painting demonstrations at Evanescence. Be sure to visit here, and the Evanescence Gallery website for upcoming events.

So, in reflection of the wonderful chats I’ve had with Arlene and with anticipation of many wonderful new experiences to come, my new paintings above convey ‘community’. A couple of these will be at Evanescence some time soon. Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks again for reading,

Cheryl Peddie

PS – Please join me in bringing your support (and spending money!) down to High River – it’s a treasure trove of yummy finds and they deserve all the support we can give.
