ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This exhibition is both a celebration of the beauty and diversity of our fragile ecosystems in the Canadian Rockies and a warning about the dramatic changes to them due to human activity and the significant climate change we are currently witnessing today.
Composed of an acrylic paintings series depicting the wildflowers of the Rocky Mountain landscape; this exhibition includes new and retrospective work from the artist, Deborah Lougheed Sinclair.
Through this project, Deborah Lougheed Sinclair hopes to raise awareness of the great danger to these fragile ecosystems that are essentially a bellweather to future environmental challenges we face, and foster an appreciation of the singular beauty of the alpine meadow microenvironment, “Before It’s Gone”.
Join us for the Opening Reception on November 4, 2022, from 4:00 – 8:00 pm.
Deborah is a graduate of Queen’s University and a Banff Centre alumnus. She has been a member of the Alberta Society of Artists since 1985 and the Society of Canadian Artists since 2018. She has exhibited nationally and internationally for over forty years. Her paintings can be found in over fifty corporate and public collections internationally. Images of Deborah’s paintings can be found in several books and numerous art catalogues. She is currently represented by the Roberts Gallery in Toronto.
Deborah has moved and travelled from coast-to-coast across Canada and the United States. She is the descendant of many generations of Canadian pioneers and early Hudson Bay employees. Two family lines are part of the Southern Alberta Old Timers Association. The historic family cottage in Banff was a very important influence. It is there where she first learned to see the changing light and patterns on lakes and towering mountain peaks. The Canadian landscape is vital to her art, and her artistic home is the Canadian Rockies.
Her acrylic paintings are a collection of elements that endeavour to convey a fleeting and varied visual experience. She is interested in the more abstract qualities of light, cloud, and shadow juxtaposed against the permanence of the land. Subtle layers of colour play an important role. Her original digital art pieces reflect similar interests using a variety of digital techniques. The final images include photographs, layers, masks, painting, erasing, and blending to achieve the unique effects on archival paper and/or metal.
