Join the Whyte Museum in welcoming long-time Bow Valley artist Erica Neumann in this opening of her Art Show & Sale. Opening Reception Saturday April 4, 2009, 2 – 4 pm, Artist in Attendance The wildlife, landscape, and floral artwork of Erica Neumann will be featured by the Museum Shop and on display in the Swiss Guides Room. As a long-time resident of the Bow Valley, now residing in Okotoks, much of Erica’s work is dedicated to the Rockies and Western Canadian wildlife. Each image carries with it not only a strong tie to nature, but also a specific story about a time and place captured permanently in Erica’s painterly images.
