The Travellers: Facing North

James Davies, "Ice Ghost", pastel, 22” x 30”
Davies says of his work: "My connection to the Canadian North is both specific and non-specific. I feel my paintings and drawings symbolically represent what I feel the north suggests regarding space, silence, and aloneness."

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:

Visual Arts Alberta Gallery
