Events and Latest Happenings

Local Events

The icy blast of a cold rain lashes at the window. Winter is upon us once again. We hope for the delay of an Indian Summer, late autumn warmth without insects to bother. Autumn also brings us back to routine and the familiarity of scheduled busyness. Mid-October ushers in something new for me: an installation piece.

CAVA: espace exploration

In collaboration with four other Alberta artists, we have created an installation which explores the journey from inspiration to completion of a work of art. Each artist has conceived of a mobile with this idea in mind. Five mobiles, five canvases hanging together in one space, moving and interacting in flowing symphony. So fun! The show opens 20th October at 6pm with an introduction and personal insight from each artist. Come and enjoy the energy as we attempt to explain the mystery of creation. CAVA 9103 95 Ave Edmonton

That’s better!

“Inspirations” the gallery adjoining Karen’s studio space (12936 108 Street Edmonton AB Canada) offers a preview of her latest work. Do drop in between the hours of 9am and noon, Monday to Friday, for a sneak peek. Or give her a ring (780-761-7262) and set up a date for private tour. Giving her a ring is a good idea anyway since she takes off occasionally.
