Alberta Bound: Works by Lynn LeCorre

Published

From Red Deer Arts Council

Red Deer Arts Council and Red Deer Public Library are pleased to present, Alberta Bound: Works by Lynn LeCorre which runs from August 19 to October 14, 2019 in the Kiwanis Gallery.

En Plein Aire artist Lynn LeCorre explores Alberta in her exhibit at the Kiwanis Gallery.

Travelling the highways and byways around Alberta inspired Lynn to not only discover what Alberta’s landscapes have to offer, but to get out of her car and paint the landscape right on the spot!  Dust, wind, rain, – it didn’t matter as long as she could capture the image of her beloved province.

Although sometimes she had to use a photograph when stepping out didn’t work, such as capturing the winter landscape or to get the aerial views from an airplane or the perfect view from the middle of the road.

Born in Regina, but raised in St. Albert, Lynn has lived in Northern Alberta (Grand Prairie and High Level) for 21 years and Jasper for a few years.   She has been an Alberta girl her whole life.  The landscapes around the various places she lived inspired this exhibit after a move to Red Deer in 2016 to become the Education Coordinator at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery.  She balances that job with teaching youth painting classes for Culture Services with the City of Red Deer.  She is once again excited to explore the southern province with fresh eyes for new compositions and landscape challenges.  That was the impetus for this show – to see how diverse the landscape is all across Alberta from her road trips and painting excursions.

From her artist statement:

Why ‘Alberta Bound?” I love a road trip! The diverse Alberta landscape inspires me. Having lived in Alberta all my life (from Edmonton, Jasper, High Level, Grande Prairie and now Red Deer) and with all my travels across the province, I am continually in awe of this land. When I drive, I am inspired to just pull over and paint what I see. So that is what I do. I pull off onto secondary highways, road allowances or any safe space that gives me the view I wish to paint. Armed with an easel, folding chair and paints, I start sketching a composition. Then I paint quickly before the fleeting light and sky change. This is my challenge. I have been painting the Alberta landscape ‘en plein aire’ for over 15 years and continue to search for new compositions and new challenges.

Red Deer Arts Council and Red Deer Public Library are pleased to present, Alberta Bound:  Works by Lynn LeCorre which runs from August 19 to October 14, 2019 in the Kiwanis Gallery.
