The Travellers: Facing North

Judith Martin, "Early Morning Fog", pastel on paper, 22” x 30”
Martin describes her process like this: "The Northern landscape has always been an inspiration to me. The land that has been carved out by glaciers and worn down by the changing seasons. The skies above in constant flux by incoming and outgoing weather patterns. lands that are haunted by ancient peoples and now animals endangered by our current land use. These are the stories that I am attempting to capture in my pastels through the use of complimentary colour and line. The marks I make are the energy I feel from the places I am interpreting."

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.
