January 17 - April 6, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, January 17, 2014 at 7pm
Born and raised on a ranch in Southern Alberta, Clay Ellis explores his connection with the landscape, referring to images, the temperament and gestures of his past. It is from the perspective of guest that Ellis makes his observations. While the works are informed by the changing perspectives of land use and ranching practices from one generation to the next, it has been his yearly visits over a 45 year period that have allowed him to see changes to the landscape that may escape those embedded in the rigors of the day to day.

Grande Prairie Guild of Artists 30th Anniversary Exhibition
Curated by Carmen Haakstad

The Grande Prairie Guild of Artists is celebrating their 30th anniversary with an exhibition of past and present work called Ribbons of Art. From the beginning, the goal of the Guild was to provide opportunities for creative development in visual arts through weekly painting sessions, workshops, and critiques. Collectively, their art is a reflection of their experiences in Grande Prairie, in the Peace Region, on their travels, and as a group that for 30 years has encouraged individual expression and painting.
