Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1943, Lois Bauman takes the wild landscape around her and reinterprets it in dynamic impressionistic style. She applies brilliant colours using free yet reflective brush strokes as she “caresses” the work to completion. Her compelling and highly-collectible paintings of Canadian landscapes can be found throughout her home country and around the world, including Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, Wales and the United States.
Blackall traveled and painted in the Middle East for two years prior to retiring in Southwest Alberta. She continues plien air painting and studio collage work.
Carole Bondaroff was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. She attended Sir George Williams University in Montreal and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax where she received her BFA in Printmaking and Art Education.

A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and the University of Guelph, Ross Bradley has exhibited nationally and internationally for more than 40 years. Upon arrival in Alberta in the late 1970s , like many before him, he focused on the prairie and mountain landscape. But his early interest in the figure soon took over and the human form took over. For the past 35 his studio practice has focused on working in the studio with the model in drawing, sculpture and photography.
For 36 years he worked as a curator and arts development Consultant with the Alberta Government and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. He has taught adult education programs, including figure drawing over the past 20 years at the Kootenay School of the Arts, Medicine Hat Cultural Centre, EPCOR Center for the Arts and Harcourt House Arts Center. He is a life member of the Alberta Society of Artists and Harcourt House Artist Run Center and has served on the Alberta and Canadian Craft Council.
