Recent Events:

erica_neumann_book_coverCongratulations to our super supreme instructor Erica Neumann. Erica was recently published as one of the artists featured in the Jane Gooch book, Bow lake: A wellspring of art. The book highlights artist's whom have found inspiration in Bow Lake and its surroundings as a source for many a painting. Erica's Painting "BLONDIE" is featured in192-page book, encompassed with other artists such Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne, Peter and Catharine Whyte, and sit's neatly amongst the pages between A.C. and Barbara Leighton and Walter J. Phillips. Swinton's art supply has a limited number of copies of the book available and while It's a simple read but it's the paintings that make this a visual feast worth owning. Paintings date from as far back as 1911 to one's from as recent as a fresh dump on the north side. Just about every style imaginable is in here. Whether you're an artist out just appreciate the mountains this is a fantastic little book. Way to go Erica!!

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. Learn More

All proceeds from the sale of these works will support the artist, and the Whyte Museum’s exhibitions and programming.
