Some exciting new major works by Janice Tanton hitting Effusion Gallery in Invermere, BC on Saturday, February 24, 2012.
We are very excited to announce that Effusion Art Gallery of Invermere, BC. is representing Janice's works in the Columbia Valley area, extending from Golden to the BC/USA border. This beautiful mountain and lake area is a favourite of Calgarians and international visitors who flock to Invermere to enjoy the unique combination of scenery, sport and culture.
Summer turns to winter and transitions abound everywhere.
This is the last image that our family saw as we were coming back from a trip to the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, AB in 2010. After this....we saw nothing but three feet of snow and sleet ahead of us on the road. An extreme freak storm in April claimed the lives of eight people in road accidents all around us. We were very lucky.
It's very difficult if not impossible to capture the real jewel-like quality in a oil painting on linen with a camera. The many glazes in this work all weave together to give an amazing optical effect in person, so I urge you to visit Elevation Gallery to view the work....before it's gone!
Tanton retires the Undercurrents:: Red Canoe Series for 2011 in honour of the passing of Algonquin Elder William Commanda.
It's that time of year again when Canada's arts and culture philanthropists gather to support the arts and wonderful programming at The Banff Centre by attending the Midsummer Ball. I've donated one of my works again this year (listed above) for the Midsummer Ball Auction at The Banff Centre to support a woman artist or arts administrator enrolled in an Aboriginal Leadership program. Check it out and bid!
Three new works in the brand new series, "What's In A Name" will debut at the opening of Sacred/Modern this weekend at Elevation Gallery in Canmore. Come see them in person! Have a look at the works in progress.
As summer approaches, I've been out tire-kicking ...or "paddle-kicking".....for a new red canoe of our own. For now, since it's still pretty cold and the rivers are high in the mountains.... I'll be content to craft them with a brush, one by one....in my studio, remembering fondly the warm lakes of the east that wait for us.
