Gordon Milne, "Kurt Browning," acrylic, 62" x 48".
In 2002, Turner Valley artist, Gordon Milne, was commissioned by the Canadian Sport Centre Calgary to paint a series of large-scale acrylic portraits, to celebrate our sports heroes. Currently comprised of 15 portraits, the "Canadian Sport Heroes Collection" was unveiled during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
This collection of portraits has been achieved with the generous support of the Canadian Sport Centre Calgary, ARC Energy Trust, BMO Financial and Alberta Culture and will ensure a lasting tribute to our Canadian sport heroes. The collection is currently on loan to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, in conjunction with which, this exhibition at the Okotoks Art Gallery has been made possible.
