At The Whyte Museum…
Across The Great Divide: Paintings by John Hartman - Opening April 8th, 2017
From The Whyte: “The 320 km Great Divide Traverse from Jasper to West Lake Louise Lodge has challenged the passion, daring and cumulative achievement of numerous alpine enthusiasts. The exhausting distance, challenging mountainous terrain and ever-changing weather defy the probability of success. Yet, in 1967, Don Gardner, Neil Liske, Charlie Locke and Chic Scott succeeded in completing this arduous route in a mere 21 days. Captivated by their adventure and eager to embark on one of his own, Hartman set out on another western Canadian painting project to recapture their trek.” For more information visit The Whyte Museum.
Bert Riggall: I to the Hills Will Lift Mine Eyes - Opening April 8th, 2017
From The Whyte: “Bert Riggall’s photographs are both documentary and aesthetically stunning renderings of Rocky Mountain life and landscape. They speak to his relationship to the mountains; exposing hunting, ranching, and guiding juxtaposed with an attention to geology, plants, and animals in the area.” For more information visit The Whyte Museum.
