A Visit to the Alberta Art Gallery

I finally made it to the Alberta Art Gallery this past Sunday to see the exhibition on Canadian landscape titled "Season to Season, Coast to Coast; A Celebration of  the Canadian Landscape"
which runs until February 20, 2017. It is a very solid exhibition with some of my favourite artists: David Milne, Illingworth Kerr, Dorothy Knowles and James Davies, one of my instructors from the University of Alberta (Faculty of Extension). I also stopped by to see my own small piece in the "Showcase" display on the main floor.

My piece "Shadow Dance" is on bottom left, second from the left.
