New and returning artists

We're pleased to welcome several new and returning artists.  In alphabetical order:

Clarence Keith Bird is a talented Cree sculptor, who specializes in carving bears and other subjects in alabaster or soapstone. 

Malaika Z Charbonneau has returned to the gallery with a number of abstract acrylic paintings on canvas, exploring the landscape of urban growth.

 

James M. Clow draws on his training as an artist and his experience as a potash miner to create unique mixed media landscapes, portraits or paintings of ravens.  He paints in acrylic, but also incorporates potash, beaten silver, gold or copper in some of his paintings.   At the moment, we have two original landscapes and several limited edition prints. 

 

Mother and daughter duo, Shelley Hudson and Rachel Schafer, have joined us, bringing totally different styles.  Shelley paints from nature and her extremely creative imagination, mostly in watercolour.  Rachel paints very sensual images of the human body and nature, mostly in acrylic on canvas. 

 

Diane Larouche-Ellard, fresh from a show called 'Topophilia' at The Gallery at the Frances Morrison Library, has a selection of mixed media landscapes and gardenscapes in our gallery.

 

 

Richard Thatcher brings his eclectic art.  He enjoys creating both expressionist and representational art in acrylic and mixed media.  At the moment, we have two expressionist pieces.

 

We currently have seven of Cree artist Jerry Whitehead's brightly coloured surreal scenes of powwow dancers or elders, in acrylic on canvas.  Six are small 24" x 18" scenes that may be purchased separately or as diptychs.
