Hey everyone! GDC Alberta North is doing a speaker series on creativity and process, the first lecture is all about illustration. I’ll be doing a talk with fellow illustrators Dwight Allott and Jeff Sylvester.
I post about this art show every year It’s a great exhibit for a great cause. The 7th annual Doctors and Derrieres exhibition and silent auction will take place on April 27th from 7 – 11pm at Enterprise Square, 10230 – Jasper Ave, Edmonton, Alberta. This year the exhibit will feature over 35 local artists! The full exhibit runs from April 19 – 27th.
A bit about Doctors & Derrieres:
Doctors and Derrieres is a fundraising event co-founded in 2006 by Edmonton based artist and show curator Roger Garcia. The idea behind this fundraiser is to have medical students pose nude for talented local artists and sculptors. Art pieces in diverse mediums celebrating the human body are then donated by each artist to be sold at the main event each year to raise funds for an emergency health Project in El Salvador. All proceeds support Change for Children’s Emergency Social Health Fund. A community-led grassroots initiative in rural El Salvador that provides health care in underserved areas. Over the past 6 years, the event has raised over $50,000. Doctors and Derrieres is hosted by Roger Garcia and University of Alberta medical students in partnership with Change for Children Association and Christian Based Communities of El Salvador (CEB’S) with donated support from the Harcourt House.

From the George Lawson Gallery:
We are pleased to be showing recent work from New York based painter Tad Wiley, his third exhibition in our gallery. For this show Wiley has chosen 28 from a group of 50 paintings on vellum paper that have occupied him since June of 2010. Approaching paper with the same rigor he brings to his wood panels, Wiley states,
“The vellum support has been a perfect choice in that its smooth surface allows the paint to sit right up on top. However the surface is not without ‘tooth’, which traps the more thinned out color in a way reminiscent of the application of tusche on a lithography stone. The translucent cast allows overspills to creep around the back surface and appear on the front in a ‘ghosting’ fashion.”
Wiley’s shift from his accustomed oil-based enamel to an alkyd painting medium for this series has allowed more spontaneity, a looser handling with expanded options for form and color within the field, resulting in a very dynamic body of work. In our new small gallery, we will show a selection of paintings in enamel on wood. Both bodies of work continue to develop Wiley’s geometric language with its traces of architecture, wood joinery, and the natural world.

Eleanor Ettinger Gallery is pleased to present the most recent works of artist Michael De Brito in his third solo exhibition. The show will be the gallery’s first exhibition at their new location in Chelsea and the first multimedia show in its history. To celebrate the show, the gallery will host an opening reception on the evening of June 2, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
For his “Larger Than Life” exhibit, De Brito will utilize different mediums to trigger the senses and create the illusion of transporting the audience to the scenes from his works. The show will consist of nine large scale oil paintings accompanied by the artist’s first video installation. De Brito is also installing a replica of the kitchen which is the setting for many of his works. “Larger Than Life” will include De Brito’s largest scale works created to date.
“With my ‘Larger Than Life’ exhibit, my goal is to bridge the gap between myself and the viewer. Both the video installation and the kitchen replica help bring my paintings to life and give the audience a deeper emotional connection to my work,” said De Brito.
The show will be featured in 2 events, the first on June 4th (5pm-8pm) as the main premiere, and the second will be featured as part of the ASTORIA ART WALK, which will be on June 11th (5-9 pm). The entire show will run through June 24th.
