The Art Gallery of Swift Current is hosting "Across the Southwest", a two-part exhibition of landscape painter Greg Hardy’s interpretation of southwest Saskatchewan, with a Coffeehouse Evening highlighting the show on Jan. 20.
The first exhibition runs from Jan. 7 to 31, with the second part opening Feb. 3 through 26.
Regarded as one of the top landscape painters of his generation, Gregory Hardy has shown his artwork in galleries across Canada and beyond for over 30 years.
This exhibition presents, across two consecutive parts, a series of large-scale paintings and drawings on canvas based on the artist's travels throughout southwest Saskatchewan.
A strong use of colour with bold strokes consistently charges Hardy’s paintings with power and energy.
Enjoy a Walk & Talk Tour with the artist on Jan. 20, including a reception and hors d' oeuvres, cash bar, and a live music performance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event begins at 7:30 p.m. There will be a $5.00 cover charge.
This exhibition is a partner project with Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery. An exhibition publication with essay and full colour imagery is available.
