Description

“Paint what Edmonton means to you.” This year-long assignment given to the members of the Society of Western Canadian Artists has resulted in a delightful collection of paintings contained within this book. These 133 jury-selected works of art showcase Edmonton's impressive cityscapes, the river valley in all its seasons, iconic buildings and sites, as well as neighbourhoods and people – all captured in a variety of artistic styles and mediums. The artists have included their personal thoughts about each piece, and you’ll also find “Did you know” facts about Edmonton throughout the book. Both artistic and educational, this book is a perfect keepsake for visitors to Edmonton, and a “must have” for Edmontonians who loves their city as much as SWCA members do! Books are also available for purchase at: Alberta Gallery of Art, Tix on the Square, The Paint Spot, Bearclaw Gallery, and Pagemaker Publishing. (While stocks last.) REVIEWS The paintings done by the artists provide emotional content to those of us who have lived our entire lives in this province and who know what an incredibly special place it truly is and will continue to be. The book you have produced ... allows many more of us to enjoy the awesome talent of the many artists who make this city and province their home. Very few of us are in a position to purchase original works, although we still marvel at their brilliance and enjoy their beauty ... Especially, at this time, we all need beauty and joy in our lives, and the artists provide that. Thank you! – Larry & Beverly MacInnis
