Opening Reception: Stampede Breakfast: Saturday, July 10, 11am onward
Newzones is pleased to announce the group show, G'ddy Up!, opening July 10th, and running concurrently with the Calgary Stampede. All are invited to join us for a Stampede Breakfast – Newzones style – which kicks off at 11 am.
The cowboy no longer solely represents machismo, but for some represents nostalgic yearnings for a simpler time. The Calgary Stampede allows us to kick off our shoes, and join in on all the magical things that it has to offer.
Calgary comes alive with cowboy culture during the Stampede, so there is no denying that July is the month of the cowboy. G'ddy Up! will explore the subject of the contemporary Wild West through means of painting and photography.
Included in Newzones' G'ddy Up! is a selection of artists who demonstrate an interest in both the complex idea of the cowboy culture, as well as those who use aspects of this culture for formal explorations.
Artists included: Joe Andoe, Aron Hill, Joshua Jensen-Nagle, David Robinson and Kevin Sonmor.
