Okotoks Art Gallery | at the Station
In my dream I was almost There: Julian Forrest
Artist Statement: “by dissecting mass consumed and frequently internet-sourced imagery, then (re)imagining or (re)interpreting these pictures, I am interested in developing loose and often ironic narratives around themes of power, tension, individuality and place.” 10am-5pm, admission by donation, 53 North Railway Street (403.938.3204)
Getting Anxious: Margaret Witschl
Although not the actual cut and paste process of traditional collage, Witschl’s paintings use a collage approach to mix stereotypically anxiety-making images such as sharp objects, warning signs and falling objects with content from her personal storehouse of worrisome events, bad dreams and general nervousness. 10am-5pm, admission by donation, 53 North Railway Street (403.938.3204)
