(in the Ardmore School Library)

Thank you to our Parent Advisory Association for sponsoring this exhibit.

The three artists featured are Carmen Gonzalez, Kathy Hildebrandt and Lori Lukasewich.  Operating within the art style of Contemporary Realism, A North American style of paint, drawing and sculpture which came into existence during the 1960’s and 1970s, an important objective of these artists is to create representational are portraying the “real” and not the “ideal”.  Focusing on the genre of still life, these artists share a desire to work in more traditional forms of representational art and utilize line, shape, colour and pattern, combined with a heightened sense of reality, to entice views into actually looking at their works.

This exhibition was curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program.
