Larry Reese and Judy Sutter among five Central Alberta artists featured in OUR West Country exhibition at MAG

Published on

News Release from Red Deer Museum & Art Gallery (MAG)

Five Central Alberta artists worked en plein air, painting the incredible landscape that is the West Country.

The Eastern Slopes of Alberta and prospective coal mining in that area have been the focus of much controversy in the last year. These mountains are more than the resources they hold. They provide the people of Alberta with much of the province’s fresh water supply as well as mental and physical connections to nature. In the summer of 2021, central Alberta artists Lynn LeCorre, Kate More, Larry Reese, Judy Sutter, and Susan Woolgar worked en plein air, painting and sketching onsite in the open air. Through their eyes, we experience the incredible landscape that is the West Country along the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rockies. See the exhibit OUR West Country: Plein Air Painting in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) December 11, 2021 to March 12, 2022, with an opening reception on Sunday, December 12th from 2-4pm. 

Words from Pat Matheson, Curator of Art:

“The MAG is looking forward to seeing this exhibition installed as it touches on a topic near and dear to many Albertans, including myself. With the new awareness most Albertans have with the landscape so close to us to the west, we invited a group of en Plein Air artists to capture the atmosphere, the beauty and the spirit of Alberta’s eastern slopes through their eyes.”

Opening Reception: Sunday, December 12, 2-4pm

Join us at 2 pm for the opening of the new exhibits OUR West Country: Plein Air Painting in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes and Ya Ha Tinda – The Ranch: Photography by Arto Djerdjerian. Artists in attendance.

Open for First Fridays! Guide in the Gallery – January 7, 5-8pm

Yvette Brideau’s photography captures small and silent spots throughout Central Alberta.

Published on

Yvette Brideau,“Tunnie” (Lorne) Nielsen’s Welding/Mechanic Shop, Benalto, AB 1995.

Empty windows and empty rooms reflect and echo what once was.

Yvette Brideau’s small black and white photographs of abandoned churches and quiet spaces reflect what is left behind by the passage of time. See the photographic exhibit Vestige: Photography by Yvette Brideau on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) December 10, 2021 to February 27, 2022.

This is a hallway exhibit: a small collection of 2-dimensional works.

Vestige /’vestidᴣ/ noun [French from Latin vestigium sole of the foot, footprint, trace.]  A mark, trace, or visible sign of something no longer present or in existence; a piece of evidence, an indication; a surviving remnant.

Words from Joanne Gruenberg, Curator of Art:  “In Vestige, photographer Yvette Brideau’s small scale black and white photographs take us to the quiet spaces that are often overlooked or left behind as people pass by and move on.”

About the Artist

Born in northern New Brunswick of Acadian descent, Yvette Brideau attended St. Thomas University in Fredericton, graduating with a degree in French Literature in 1973. She developed a fascination for black and white photography and
studied with Dr. Harry Thompson, a devotee to the zone system of Fred Picker and methods of Ansel Adams. Yvette moved to Red Deer in 1984 and in 1994 Yvette and her husband David More re-located to the hamlet of Benalto and established a wee home and former church studio and a garden named Benhaven. Partners since 1977, Yvette and David’s journey together is revealed in the Red Deer MAG book The Greatest Garden.
