I feel so bad I haven’t posted all summer. Life really got away from us as our entire summer was hijacked by an issue we had with a renter in our old farmhouse. That is for another post, heck, its a whole other blog!
I really wanted to talk about a great little gallery in Central Alberta called Different Strokes Gallery in Olds, Alberta. Deb recently opened this little diamond in the midst of Alberta cattle country.
Here’s a little quote from the Different Strokes Gallery webpage: I think it says it best!
“Different Strokes Art Gallery is committed to broadening the confines of what individuals think of when they hear the term “Gallery”. We believe that art is not necessarily meant to be quiet and passive – a gallery should have the same passion for its exhibited artworks that the artists have for their own work.
Different Strokes exhibits all forms of art by artists and artisans, mainly from Alberta, focusing on the artist and not just the art work. We welcome all art lovers to come in, be our guest, and appreciate the many different shapes, forms and sizes that art can take.”
I’m going to be doing a trunk show with new pieces at Different Strokes just in time for Christmas shopping on November 6, 2011 from 11am – 4pm.
If you’re in the neighbourhood, please stop by the Gallery.
The gallery is open to guests Monday to Saturday at 10:00 am.
5010 – 50th Avenue
