You might want to bring a parka to the Kiwanis Gallery’s upcoming show, “Baby, It’s Cold Out Here!” February 20 to April 22, 2019. This juried exhibition features visual arts members of the Red Deer Arts Council, giving us their impressions and interpretations of a Canadian winter.
The theme helps to celebrate the Canada Winter Games being held in Red Deer from February 15 to March 3, and reminds us that, as a northern city, we can choose to embrace and participate in our uncomfortable winters. Artists were offered a wide-open theme, to be inspired by how Canadians spend winter, what we think of winter, or what we do in winter. (No flying south allowed!) We selected the work of 21 artists, and the results are frigidly fabulous!
First Friday Opening: March 1, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Artists will be in attendance. A musical performance will highlight the evening.
For a laugh and to get everyone thinking about winter, here are some fun quotes!
“Snow in April is abominable,” said Anne. “Like a slap in the face when you expect a kiss.” —Writer Lucy Maud Montgomery in Anne of Ingleside (1939)
“Canadians are fond of a good disaster, especially if it has ice, water, or snow in it. You thought the national flag was about a leaf, didn’t you? Look harder. It’s where someone got axed in the snow.”
—Margaret Atwood, in Strange Things: The Malevolent North in Canadian Literature, 1995
“Not until I came to Canada did I realize that snow was a four-letter word.”
—Canadian-Argentine writer Alberto Manguel
“Real Canada is where people wear sweaters for survival, not style.”
― Mark Leiren-Young, Never Shoot a Stampede Queen: A Rookie Reporter in the Caribou
We welcome everyone to this special exhibit and we look forward to seeing what you think of our members’ ideas about winter – and maybe a game or two!
