Calgary in September

After a quick visit to the Epcor windows where one artist was installing trees and pine cones in knitted sleeves, I went to the Art Gallery of Calgary on Stephen's Avenue. This gallery had turned me away twice as it closes everything except the gift shop when it is taking down or installing a new exhibition and my timing was bad twice.

This time, however, timing was good and I got in for $2 (lunchtime special) and saw some stunning images of Rodeo, black and white printed up BIG and even BIGGER by Donald Woodman, A thought provoking film (b&w) by Colin Kirkpatrick - The cowboy and the spaceman and a collection of 50 artworks from Calgary Civic Art Collection - Hmmmm.

Art talk - Judy Chicago
Of note for the future is the exhibition Sept 25th - Jan 23 2010 When women rule the world: Judy Chicago in Thread. Included in this period is an Artists talk at the Glenbow Museum on Tues Sept 29th, and several workshops on spinning, weaving and wet felting.... etc, see website.
