Portraits of Nature by Louis Brandsma

March 12th, 2023 - April 21st, 2023

Louis Brandsma is a self-taught nature artist who was born and raised in southern Alberta. He grew up on a farm, where he learned to love and appreciate the wildlife around him. He began drawing at a young age and started painting as a teenager. As his work progressed, he became inspired by the works of the Dutch masters Van Ruisdael and Hobbema. He has also been inspired by wildlife artists Robert Bateman and Daniel Smith. 

Louis currently resides on an acreage near Lethbridge, Alberta with his wife Cindy, near their children and grandchildren.

The Art of Folding Paper by Lev Zienchuk

March 14th, 2023 - June 3rd, 2023

Explore the work of youth artist Lev Zienchuk in this amazing three-dimensional installation called "The Art of Folding Paper."

"As my parents were international teachers, I have lived abroad for most of my life. I was born in Seoul, Korea and grew up in KAUST, Saudi Arabia. It was in Saudi Arabia where I was introduced to the art of Origami, and I was immediately captivated by this simple and ancient art. I started off with simple models, as every artist does, and gradually evolved into creating more complex works.

My family moved to Lethbridge, Alberta in 2020 and in 2022, I started folding modular Origami works. Since then, they have become my main artistic output. I have recreated works by Origami Masters Robert J. Lang, Byriah Loper, and Kota Imai. I am very glad to have this opportunity to show my modular works, tessellations, and other single sheet works in this exhibition."
