Monique Westra’s Pet Portraits
September 15-20, 2015

We’re giving local curator and art historian, Monique Westra, a break from art talks and writing about artists to rightfully bask in her own artistic talent. Monique Westra specializes in commissioned portraits of our furry family members. During the third week of September, we’ll be exhibiting a number of her portraits in what’s sure to be our most adorable show this season. Monique will be joining us in the gallery for ArtWalk weekend, September 19th and 20th, and eager to discuss the immortalization of your own favourite four-legged friend.

Cindy Delpart has been hard at work these last few months and we couldn’t be more excited about her latest body of work. Staying true to her exquisite abstract expressionist style, Cindy has outdone herself with a bundle of dreamy new canvasses that will fill our walls during the last week of September. Cindy will be in attendance for a daytime celebration on Saturday, September 26th so be sure to mark it on your calendar.

Once you’ve been awed by David Thauberger‘s travelling retrospective, Roadtrips and Other Diversions, at the Glenbow, supplement your experience with a visit to Masters Gallery for a look at David’s latest works. We’ll be offering a number of new paintings that span his selection of iconic Canadian subjects, from grain elevators to red boats against mountain vistas. The combination of both the Glenbow’s and Masters Gallery’s exhibitions will provide Calgarians with an extraordinary up close view of one of Canada’s most prominent contemporary artists.
