Coming of Age: The Graduates

Thomas Sidwell, "Degenerate", 4' x 3', acrylic and charcoal on board
Red Deer College grad Sidwell described his process this way: "These paintings deal the the city as a subject. Though I have referenced specific locations in both Red Deer and Edmonton, the abstraction present in the pieces is my own personal exploration of the subject matter...It is my intent that not only the imagery of my work but also the material reality and the physical application of the paint or any other medium speaks to the subject as well."

"Coming of Age: The Graduates" is a group show featuring the work of recent art school graduates. Ten artists were selected from five Albertan communities: Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, and Lethbridge. The show runs at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery until July 14. The gallery is open Wed-Fri from 10-4 pm and Sat from 12-4 pm. The gallery will be closed on June 30 for Canada Day.
