CALGARY — We have a lot to look forward to in the new year for visual arts in the city. Venues for emerging artists are growing in numbers and buzz of Contemporary Calgary’s future at the Centennial Planetarium stirs anticipation. Our cultural renaissance may be moving at a snail’s pace compared to the speed driven, boom city we knew in the past, but it is there — get out and enjoy it!

Miss.Nomer
Lauren Walker
Herringer Kiss Gallery
January 7 – 30, Reception January 7, 5-8 p.m.

Herringer Kiss puts the spotlight on Calgary’s Lauren Walker once more with the exhibition Miss.Nomer. Plays of pattern and colour dictate these feel-good pieces. Walker’s large mixed-media paintings (pictured) could easily be my cure to seasonal blues; the pieces seem to have hypnotic powers, vitality radiates from the composition. From her first days of representation by Herringer Kiss, Walker has been touted as an artist to watch out for.

Best Intentions
Jeremy Pavka and Sean Procyk
Stride Gallery
January 8 – March 4, Reception January 9, 8 p.m.

Stride is getting down to earth with Best Intentions, an exhibition by Jeremy Pavka and Sean Procyk. The two artists spent the last days of summer 2015 off the grid in the Peace River region of Northern Alberta in pursuit of a self-reliant existence. The artists truly embraced the old wisdom, “Do not search outside yourself,” setting forth on a path to a new collaborative identity, free of the habits of consumerism we all know too well. The resulting works will be shared through video, sound and installation in Stride’s Main Space.

Jack Bush: In the Studio
Colleen Heslin: Needles and Pins
Esker Foundation
January 23 – May 8, Reception January 22, 6-10 p.m.

If you haven’t yet been to Inglewood’s Esker Foundation, give this stunning 4th floor gallery a visit in the New Year. The spacious site will be host to two well-paired exhibitions this spring. In the Studio gives us a look into the studio and working process of Jack Bush, the influential colour-field painter emerging in ‘50s Toronto. As with all great cultural movements, there is a story to be told and to be understood. This exhibition looks at how a studio setting and practice ultimately influences the art. Our second artist in the space is a recent winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, a huge honour accompanied with a substantial monetary prize. Colleen Heslin’s Needles and Pins builds on tradition, with her hand-dyed, stained, stitched and stretched fabrics. Her works could easily be homage to the colour field paintings of the 20th century.
