Skai Fowler, "Prairie Wind (detail)," 2013, acrylic on canvas, 36" x 72".
Opening Reception: Friday April 26, 6-10pm
"Surface Scratches and Inscriptions" is an exhibition of new paintings inspired by Fowler's personal connection to the landscape and history of the Badlands of central and southern Alberta. "My grandfather was the first park ranger of Dinosaur Provincial Park and a self-made paleontologist. I spent many winters and summers at the park growing up in that other-worldly environment. My bloodline calls me to come celebrate; to be a part of that land and its history; to dream of its future."
