The Travellers: Facing North

Elaine Funnell, "Seasons: High Bush Cranberry Study #2", watercolour, 20” x 30”
Funnell describes her process this way: "Nature and native plants have been my inspiration for my botanical watercolour paintings. Preferring to work from life, using watercolour allows me to accurately capture the fine detail of wild grasses, mushrooms, and leaves among other plants, blending fine are and science reminiscent of the early 18th century botanicals."

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
