Jonathan Forrest - "Building Blocks of Colour"
Yechel Gagnon - "Midwinter Thaw"
Works from exhibition G'ddy Up!
- August 25
Opening Reception: Saturday July 7, 1-4
Newzones is pleased to announce the return of the annual group exhibition, "G'ddy Up!"
"G'ddy Up!" will display artworks by artists who seek to explore the contemporary cowboy culture as well as those who implement aspects of this culture in formal exploration through painting, photography, and even combinations of the two.
While "G'ddy Up!" is sure to please those looking for some good ol' western iconography, it will also demonstrate that the Wild West has changed – and has much more to offer these days than just the cowboy. "G'ddy Up!" will survey artwork by artists who diffuse the image of the "Wild West" into a "West" that is elegant, cosmopolitan and vibrant. A "West" where contemporary artists live and work, while producing world class art.
The Calgary Stampede brings the city to life with pulsating cowboy culture, and Newzones is no exception! Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, July 7, 1-4 pm.
