CALGARY — Our city and province are home to an incredible number of artists whose talent has earned them respect on local, national and international levels. Here are a few shows this month that are putting a spotlight on Calgary- and Alberta-based artists.
It’s a Jungle Out There!?
This collaborative project by RandM Collective brings together a select group of Alberta illustrators on a project that will result in the creation of a new children’s storybook featuring their work. The general public will also be invited to contribute to the project by drawing their own interpretation of the story. Don’t miss the artist reception on November 13th for a roundtable discussion with the artists.

New Works by Curtis Cutshaw
Herringer Kiss Gallery
November 22 – January 3
A graduate of the Alberta College of Art + Design, Curtis Cutshaw’s latest paintings are highly experiential: they are touched, rubbed, scratched, marked, erased and distressed. Cutshaw used individual birch wood tiles to deconstruct images and create a puzzle for the mind’s eye. Though his work may seem spontaneous and unplanned, every piece is carefully constructed, and every mark intentional.AB, Alberta, fine art
