Arteries: August 2014

Thursday 31st, July 2014 / 14:37
By Matt Hanson

CALGARY — During the apex of the sunbathing season, art exhibits are perfect places for much-needed tranquility in the midst of weathering the anticipated summer heat. August is a great time to refresh on what’s new, hot and cool as galleries transition into exhibitions featured in the upcoming autumn renewal. With that in mind, here are three exhibits to see before they close.

Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery
The Glenbow Museum
Until August 24

AB-CITY-Arteries-1---Salvador-Dali's-Santiago-el-GrandeLord Beaverbrook, a multi-millionaire business tycoon and philanthropist, left behind a world-class art collection of masterworks housed in the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton. Old masters and Canadian icons from the gallery, 75 in total, are touring the country. Salvador Dalí’s Santiago El Grande is sure to break open the seams of reality, as Emily Carr’s pieces will conjure the naturalistic impetus through her landscapes of the Canadian west.

FINE LINES: Drawings from the Nickle Collection and the Mackie Donation
University of Calgary’s Nickle Galleries
Until August 23

Calgary artist Helen Mackie recently donated 130 drawings by Canadian artists to the Nickle Gallery, which led to the exhibition FINE LINES. The exhibit includes works from countless artists, a monumental trove of drawings by professional visionaries. Among them are the noteworthy Marion Nicoll, Illingworth Kerr, A.Y. Jackson, Gerald Tailfeathers, and Lionel Lemoine Fitzgerald. With a focus on Western Canada, FINE LINES features artworks from the 1800s to today.

John Clark: A Tribute
Contemporary Calgary
Until September 1

John Clark left his final mark on the Canadian art world 25 years ago, when he died of cancer in Lethbridge. This summer, Contemporary Calgary pays tribute to Clark, a national treasure, whose international career culminated in his professorship at the University of Lethbridge. Born in Yorkshire, U.K., his works have been shown at the National Gallery of Canada, and elsewhere among the most distinguished galleries in the nation, as his artwork evokes the prime subject matter of the Canadian visual landscape.
