June 19, 20201 min read
We've opened our archives at the West End Gallery in Edmonton and have released three etchings by David Blackwood. These three pieces, as seen below, are ranging in dates from 1987 to 1990. Specifically, Flora S. Nickerson was featured in an exhibition with David Blackwood at the West End Gallery in the late 70s and written up by the Edmonton Journal in November of 1979.
Salt Spring Island artist Jeannette Sirois has created a series of new coloured pencil drawings featuring birds and florals. Fascinated by details, her delicate renderings of the natural world are a treasure to behold.
"My biggest quest is to capture the unseen: ultimately allowing the spectator to experience and sense the air, the light, the smells, and the sounds of a stream gurgling in the spring, the cry of the cicada or the background noise made by tires on a rainy day downtown."
