The Travellers: Facing North

Noni Boyle, "Same Moon Hokusai Wave Yukon", charcoal on paper, 42” x 17”
Boyle says of her work: "This series of work - The Same Moon - considers the universal experience of longing for the familiar landscape of home...the works all combine landscape and imagery of my own (from Yukon, Northern Ontario, France and Scotland) with iconic elements from the prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige."

The Travellers is a loosely knit group of landscape, environmental artists and writers from different provinces and territories in Western Canada ~ Alberta, BC, and the Northwest Territories.
They are united by their desire to represent their specific landscape and environmental interests as emotional experiences. These artists connect the viewer with Northern Canada through diverse points of view and expressive art mediums.

Experience the northern landscape in "Facing North" through the paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints and poetry of 12 Canadian Artists until April 13 at:
