Due to the temporary lockdown, Dana Irving’s exhibition, “From Here to There,” was displaced in March of 2020. We now have an opportunity to revisit this genuinely fantastic exhibition with the relaunch in our Edmonton gallery six months later! With six new paintings to add to this collection, Dana Irving and the West End Gallery invite you to a re-opening of “From Here to There,” Saturday, September 19, 2020!
Irving’s painting style is borne of a deep affection for the Canadian landscape. From her childhood in rural BC surrounded by pine trees and lakes to her current home in Vancouver where nature can be ignored by no one, the natural world has left an indelible mark on her sense of aesthetics and place.
“The pattern of going to a beautiful place and staying a while, seeing it in all kinds of weather, at all times of day and then drawing and painting it, is a loop that I love to repeat. I have always held an affection for the Rockies and the national parks around them, having vacationed throughout BC and Alberta many times as a child. In my late teens, I lived in Jasper for a year and this appreciation only deepened. In 2017 and 2019 I did several hiking trips around Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. These paintings stemmed from those adventures. I am always amazed how far I can go just one step (or paddle) at a time.” –Dana Irving 2020
Exhibition continues through Oct 1, 2020. All artwork is subject to pre-sale.
