An Important Note About Securing Your Purchase

Shopify, the platform this site is built on, does not automatically place a hold on an item that you have placed into your cart. It's not taken out of our inventory (or unavailable for others to place in to their carts) until your payment is processed.

Because many of these pieces are one of a kind, we highly recommend purchasing any 'must haves' ASAP and then returning to browse for more.

Current Exhibitions

My Name Is Not Tree - Penny Corradine

Alberta artist Penny Corradine’s art continually evolves, influenced by the natural world. Nature has always been at the heart of her attempts to share through painting. She has pursued expressionist landscapes for years and now she is overcome with the idea of trees.

After reading The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, Penny started seeing trees as individuals. She didn’t see them just as green specks on a landscape or even as different species (pine, spruce, birch), but she started seeing them as individuals or families with lives of their own. She began to feel a close-ness to them that she didn’t acknowledge before.

Penny finds this connection works best when she is alone in nature. She lives in a house in a forest and the woods are a constant and close part of her life. The mystery of the woods envelopes her and thus she is allowed into a sacred space. Penny wanted to reciprocate with reverence and believes that artists are called into the company of Spirit, and that the forest is her guide. Penny wanted these paintings to speak for trees. She wants the paintings big and assertive. She does not want the trees to be insignificant sticks in the ground or clumps of green shapes, or just add-ons to a pretty picture.

The Scene Between - Michelle Wiebe

Cultural disconnect and loss is a common theme running through many Canadian families. This exhibit explores one artist’s journey to find beauty in the fragmentation within her own family. Loosely drawing from Anishinaabe beadwork patterns found on bandolier bags made in the 19th century, the heart of this exhibit is one set of letterpress printed hand carved linoleum blocks that in turn, symbolize lost language, cultural assimilation as well as genetic traits.

Michelle Wiebe has created several small bodies of work that explore joining of her Scottish, French and Ojibwe heritage. Each series focuses on aspects she has grappled with in learning about her family’s history; these can be summarized as Loss, Searching and Appearance. While the same patterned linoleum images form the foundation of each piece, the results widely vary in the clarity and intent. This results in a collection ranging from wordless protest posters to colourful mixed media work through to stark multi block linocut prints. Through the repetition of letterpress printing and various themes explored in these works, a pattern begins to emerge of personal identity as well as an awareness of what has been lost. Throughout this process is reflection on whether it is possible to appropriate from one’s own culture if a person was not raised within it.
