"Bob and Darcy"
Terry Kazakoff, "Bob and Darcy," watercolour, 20" X 26", 2009.
AT THE LEIGHTON ART CENTRE
Open Water, September 5 to October 24, 2009, Leighton Art Centre
The Leighton Art Centre sits on a gloriously scenic bluff south of Calgary, the former home of painters A.C. and Barbara Leighton. This fall, the Centre will be the site of Open Water, the annual juried show of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour. This is the first time the show has been based in Alberta, and only the second time it’s journeyed to western Canada. Worth the short trek from the city, it runs September 5 to October 24, and will feature 63 paintings of 300 open-call submissions. Long-active in Alberta, this show solidifies the Society’s presence in the province.
