Reception, Saturday, November 5, 3 to 6 pm
artist in attendance
Contemporary and historic paintings by a senior Canadian artist that explore transitions, the dramatic moments, and the clash of weather systems; all predicated on the idea of alpine defined by the Swiss Alps and the Canadian Rockies.
It features recent responses to the Canadian Rockies and dramatic events of fire and weather as well as choice works from his earlier Swiss Alps and Source/Derivations Series. A striking, atmospheric collection, which emphasizes Allan’s long-standing interests, that we know will amaze and astonish with their depth and intensity.
