ERIC CAMERON: A Conceptual Approach

December 11, 2010 – January 23, 2011
Location: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie

Dare to imagine! Try to conceive of a kind of art that is an exercise in controlled unpredictability. Such is the work of Eric Cameron. His Thick Paintings are produced by laboriously applying coat after coat of gesso to objects that become transformed beyond recognition in the process. As he continues to add more coats, the Thick Paintings continue to be transformed in ways that continue to take him by surprise. Any semblance of resolution is fleeting and impermanent. It is doubtful if the work can ever truly be said to be “finished”, though inevitably the artist’s work on it will, one day, come to an end. Learn more…

75 MILLION: Bison Drawings of Adrian Stimson

December 8, 2010 – January 23, 2011
Location: Grande Prairie Public Library, 9839-103 Avenue

This group of 25 drawings are both realistic representations and imagined petroglyph styled stories of the great bison saga of North America.
