Now Open | Ian Sheldon "Finding Space"
GFA is pleased to present our first solo exhibition by Jasper-based artist Ian Sheldon. In his latest collection, Ian combines his diversity of subject with a passion for geographical exploration to create ethereal, wide horizon, and big sky paintings that explore a deeper sense of place and colour.
We are moving December 5, 2020!
The time has come! After 11 years on 11th Ave, GFA is on its way to its new home in the fast-transitioning Manchester district of southeast Calgary. Freshly renovated space in the heart of the Barley Belt, plenty of room for all our amazing artists and an inspiring new neighbour, Interior Living. Oh, and did we mention abundant free parking?!
Our new address is 523 Cleveland Cres SE - only five km from our current location and just five minutes' drive from Chinook Centre.
It has been labour of love to design a space that we hope will create a unique new gallery experience for you. We are excited to welcome you in as of Saturday, December 5, 2020.
Blu SmithNo Pressure, No Diamonds | December 5 to 31, 2020
Filling canvases with light and vibrant hue in such a way as to achieve a distinctive mood, Blu Smith's work transforms organic and natural subject matter into explosions of shape, colour and translucent form.
Smith's imaginative style is a stimulating twist on the representation of landscape in artistic form, employing an incredibly electrifying contrast of galactic colour. Painting in broad washes and textures and drawing out 3D shapes with structured, incisive line, Smith has developed a very distinguished voice as a contemporary artist providing viewers with an innovative approach to the perception and appreciation of natural scenery.
Please note that Blu's exhibtion will be at ou brand new gallery opening Dec 5th:
