Please join me on Fri Dec 12 from 6:30 – 9:30pm for the artist’s reception of my very first solo show – ‘Prairie Girl’. The show will be at the lovely Evanescencey Gallery and Art Studio in High River Alberta. It’s just a quick drive from the south end of Calgary and well worth the visit. You’ll find the gallery at 61 – 8 Ave SE, High River. Look for their dark blue awnings.
This show features my newest work painting the prairie in oils. The paintings will be predominantly landscapes, with a focus on the prairie & rolling foothills. I’ll also have a selection of my small street scenes. After all, lots of us who live on the prairie still live in town, or even in ‘the big city’, including me! Community life is a big part of living under the prairie sky, even if you call an acreage, farm or ranch ‘home’.
I’ve been working with the idea lately of having quiet spaces in my work, areas where the eye can rest. I still love to create artwork that is busier in theme and composition. However, these are more about the movement of light, air through the piece, and the restfulness of mind and spirit.
Gallery owner Arlene Westen Evans has curated a beautiful selection of fine art including paintings, fibre art, mixed media, pottery, jewelry and other fine pieces for your collection or for gifting.
