Join them in the gallery for a wild and wonderful afternoon of three artist demonstrations. Each of these established artists paint in oils, and have truly distinct styles, followings, and accolades between multiple art platforms. Michelle Grant of Unbridled Imagery has created multiple designs for the Royal Canadian Mint coins and is well known in the Calgary Stampede and Equine Art communities. Erica Neumann of Neumann Gallery & Studio has in fact painted and celebrated the Spirit of the Wild most recently through published adult colouring books, and is renowned for her direct brush stroke approach to painting. Doug Swinton of Swinton’s Art Supply, Instruction & Framing fills the room with laughter, inspiration, and pure love of art. Each of these artists and friends share a passion for our western lifestyle, wildlife, and landscapes. They celebrate this passion through a worldwide influence of continuous learning and art instruction. Take the opportunity to learn more about their long list of art ventures in person, as you enjoy their paintings in progress! They look forward to welcoming you on the weekend at Avens Gallery in Canmore, Alberta. You don’t want to miss the special energy that is sure to fill the space!
