Catching My Breath and Celebrating! The Final Piece of the Puzzle in an Artist’s Exhibition.

Alberta Light, A Retrospective :: Neel deWit-Wibaut at Bluerock Gallery

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.
