Marking the Valley: A Juried Exhibition

Marking the Valley is a juried art exhibition celebrating the beauty of the Capital Region river valley. It features 28 Alberta artists from Cold Lake, Athabasca, Calgary, and the Greater Edmonton Region. Presented by Visual Arts Alberta - CARFAC and the River Valley Alliance, Marking the Valley promotes Alberta Art while showcasing the North Saskatchewan River Valley.

McCormick says of this work: Throughout the year I often go and paint at Red Coat Landing in Fort Saskatchewan which is located at the boat launch on the North Saskatchewan River. This is on the west side of town. It is a beautiful spot that continues to inspire me. This painting is based on a study I painted in March 2013. I stood on the riverbank looking east . It was a wonderful painting experience with just a bit of mist hovering over the water, the sounds of ice cracking and the arrival of the first water fowl of the year.

Marking the Valley is at the Kaasa Gallery in the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (11455 87 Ave NW in Edmonton) from August 28 to October 7, 2014 and at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium ( 1415 14 Ave NW in Calgary) from October 17 to November 30, 2014.
