'Art Church' was the best, most simultaneously reverential and irreverent name we could think of when beginning this series of come-as-you-are, bring-your-ideas, everyone welcome freeform discussion of art and inspiration. Our chat begins at 12 p.m., and there will be coffee, tea and homemade goodies on offer.
Please join us!
When Calgary artist Verna Vogel agreed to host this Art Church, she was immediately brimming with ideas which could serve as a great place to start a discussion! Some of Verna's mesmerizing paintings from her 'Archaea' and 'Fragile Planets' series currently reside on sunlit pillars in our gallery space. As an artist, she is interested in 'perception beyond sight' - and how this informs our human experience of life.
Calgary artist Frances Vettergreen will also join us for this Art Church! Frances' extraordinary paintings - whether abstract landscape, plein air or still life - are an exploration of her distinctive visual voice as an artist.
John Morel'sformidable skills in fine woodworking are currently on display in many forms around Bluerock, this impossibly graceful music stand being one of them. Whether it be one of his live-edge tables, a rocking chair or a small lidded box, his creations are always examples of expert design, seamless joinery, and beautiful finishing.
