Most artists, includ­ing myself, are hap­pi­est when we are work­ing on our craft and not spend­ing time on marketing/accounting, grant and pro­posal writ­ing etc. Recently, I was dis­cussing with sev­eral artists, the mer­its of gallery rep­re­sen­ta­tion vs. going it solo. Here’s some of what I thought about.

Almost a year after dis­cov­er­ing I have breast can­cer, I am so very pleased to announce I was wel­comed with open arms by what I con­sider to be the most dynamic gallery rep­re­sent­ing Cana­dian artists any­where in the nation. Today, I joined some bril­liant artists and incred­i­ble staff at Canada House Gallery.

When the real­ity of life is too much, as human beings we have our imag­i­na­tion, our made-up, make-believe worlds to help us nav­i­gate the unimag­in­able. For artists and cre­atives, I can only think that we are some­how super-charged with imag­i­na­tions — for the best, and for the worst. Here’s how I’m nav­i­gat­ing these days.

Now, it’s time to take some time and cel­e­brate the suc­cess of this won­der­ful show. I’m usu­ally not one to pause long enough to catch my breath.…but catch­ing my breath was exactly what I did yes­ter­day when I saw the works all hung together. As artists, we need to take a moment and cel­e­brate the accom­plish­ments along the way. It is no mean feat, tak­ing hours of man­power, years of train­ing, eons of prac­tice and a lit­tle magic!

Neel de Wit-Wibaut is a painter who splits her time between Cal­gary and a remote loca­tion in the Alberta foothills. Devoted to her work, she has been paint­ing faith­fully for decades. Her paint­ings express her deep appre­ci­a­tion of nature and invite the viewer to join her in a reflec­tion on light. Work­ing pri­mar­ily in oils on wood, her sub­jects are inspired moments of illumination—sunlight, moon­light and the col­ors in shad­ows. This ret­ro­spec­tive is a trib­ute to Neel’s remark­able career and an homage to the Alberta foothills where she has lived for more than half her life.
