Alberta Bound: Works by Lynn LeCorre

Exploring the Alberta landscape has kept Lynn continually striving to capture the natural light and changing colours that radiate the fields, hills and all its varying forms. She has been a 'en plein air’ artist for over 15 years. She strives to capture the relationship of colour through various compositions and formats while maintaining a painterly approach. She strives to capture the essence of the land and how the light enhances colour and form.

Artist Proof: Cyanotype Prints by Robin Byrnes

 Cyanotype Prints by Robin Byrnes

This collection of artworks illustrate the depth and diversity of artists practicing in Red Deer and Central Alberta.  Inspired by monthly social gatherings of artists from multiple disciplines, this exhibit is descriptive of the artists, their media and working environments. Using cyanotype photographic process to interpret digital and hand-drawn images, the exhibit consists of close-up and in situ portraits of skilled artists who practice a variety of visual, performing, literary and other arts. Robin's exhibit is representative of the unique one-of-a-kind nature of the cyanotype prints.

Out of the Kitchen:Works by Susan Barker and Issy Covey 

These two artists have been creating their artwork in the kitchen, the heart of the home, in the midst of the hustle and bustle. Working from their kitchens has inspired both artists to create 'kitchen' art about the place they work. The work is immediately available to walk past and check on the clay or add a few brush loads of paint, then carry on with daily life or continue to work on their pieces throughout the day. What would your kitchen produce if you were an artist?
*First Friday: December 6
