Seagulls flying over the ocean, sunsets in the valley, prairie dogs in grassland, the glitter of city lights on a Friday night, the grit of the morning after, the excitement of a game at a stadium, or the peace of a family picnic in the park. A scene from Western Canada celebrates not only the places we live, but also the observations we have and the experiences we share there.
A scene. Loosely defined as a place where either real life/fictional events take place, Scenes from Western Canada; the exhibition is about much more than natural scenery.
It is an exhibition that explores the backdrop of home, or for visiting artists, it’s an opportunity to share in what inspired you to pick up a pencil or brush when you visited.
There is no shortage of inspiration from the environment in Western Canada. Spoilt for natural bounty from mountains, trees, coastlines, fields, rainforests, prairies, boreal forest and even desert, there is an abundance of natural scenery that has driven many an impassioned artist to the easel.
However, there is more to Western Canada’s scenery, like the farms and ranches, parks, vineyards, suburbs, uptown, downtown and the city streets. Everyday life, the people that live there and events that take place, all make up scenes from our daily lives. Share yours in Scenes from Western Canada.
