Paul Braid

Paul Braid (1920-1999) painted landscapes, life and portraits for over 65 years, from the age of 13 to his passing in December 1999. After studying under Franklin Carmichael (of Group of Seven fame), Paul graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1947, and came west in 1953. Paul did not limit his exploration and experimentation, painting in a variety of different styles and mediums. He also taught throughout the province for the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension, and pursued his art career full time until October 1999.

Paul's love of history and nature are evident throughout his work. Concentrating on painting scenes of Alberta's splendour and heritage, Paul's work has captured the essence of the natural beauty that is found in Alberta's mountains and homesteads.

Paul had 22 paintings on tour with the Art Gallery of Alberta's Travelling Exhibition Program (Alberta Foundation for the Arts). These paintings were on tour until 2005. Paul's work is also found in art collections, both public and private, around the world.

Hendrik Bres

Hendrik Bres was born in 1932 in the Hague in the Netherlands. Primarily a self-taught artist, he has attended drawing and printmaking classes at the Extension Department of the University of Alberta. Through the use of subtle colour, Bres achieves a wide variety of moods within the limits of similar kinds of landscapes. Although his landscapes are not all derived from particular locations, they nevertheless evoke Albertan scenes. By not restricting himself to specific places, he allows his imagination free play to combine landscape detail, light and space, achieving a description which is both convincing and intriguing.

Sandra Bromley

Sandra Bromley’s art works have appeared in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Asia and North America. Her multidisciplinary, interactive art includes traditional sculpture as well as video, sound, photography and installation. She works solo and in collaboration with artists as well as with professionals in other disciplines.

Paul Buckingham

For Paul Buckingham, photography is the visual expression of his passion for precision and simplicity. He aims for crisp, clean images of architecture, while looking for vantage points that will make the viewer see their urban environment in a new light. His goal on any shoot is to discover the beauty that goes unnoticed, often through unconventional perspectives.

Patrick Bulas

Patrick Bulas is an artist who has lived in Saskatoon for the past twelve years. Born in Edmonton, he has received both his BFA and MFA from the University of Alberta. He has had solo exhibitions in Edmonton and Saskatoon and has participated in group exhibitions in Finland, Vancouver, and Spain. In addition to his studio practice, he is the printmaking studio technician and a sessional instructor at the University of Saskatchewan and a founding member of Ink Slab Printmakers. He has spent the past several years trying to understand the wonder and beauty of phenomena studied in physics and astronomy through woodcut, etching, and mezzotint. His latest series of prints depict his cat Lucy interacting with a variety of animals and he has collaborated with fellow artist Jordan Schwab on a series of work exploring alternative approaches to printmaking. He's pretty sure there's a connection between his cat, using gunpowder to print a woodblock, and the mysteries of the universe, but he hasn't quite found it yet. 

Catherine Burgess

Catherine Burgess RCA was born in Alberta in 1953 and graduated from the University of Alberta Fine Arts Department in 1975 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1974 she attended Yale University’s “Yale at Norfolk” summer program. Over the past forty years she has mounted 28 solo exhibitions and participated in over 70 group shows, both nationally and internationally. Her sculptures are represented in over twenty public collections across Canada. Downtown Edmonton is home to two of her outdoor commissioned pieces: The Big Rock, 1995 (a collaborative sculpture done with Sandra Bromley) and Return, 2001.

C. W. Carson

C.W. Carson is an urbane artist (painter, digital artist, installation artist). He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta, and received an M.F.A. in painting from the University of British Columbia. An artist with a trap line, Carson collects images and stories rather than collecting bottles and cans. The collected content is used, reused, and abused in the artmaking process. His art reflects his multifaceted life as a gay male Canadian.

Slavo Cech

Slavo Cech turned his hand to wrought iron after studying art history and painting and exploring a variety of other media. In the 20 years since, he has created beautifully formed sculptures on an intimate scale as well as large site-specific showpieces, all with his characteristic softness of line and curve, intricacy, strength and sense of movement and fluidity. In service of his pieces, Cech has mastered traditional blacksmithing and modern techniques, such as jet cutting and continues to evolve his practice, working alone on expressive artworks or with architects and designers on commercial pieces. 

Bryan Chubb

Bryan Chubb was born in Edmonton, Alberta and grew up in small towns in Alberta and British Columbia. He began painting in the early 1970's and in 1975 left a position as graphic artist/cartographer with the Canadian Wildlife Service to paint full time. That was soon followed by a solo exhibition at the Edmonton Art Gallery (now Art Gallery of Alberta). Though based in the Edmonton area for 30 years, has traveled and painted throughout western Canada, and occasionally beyond. In 1999, moved to the Cariboo Region in north central British Columbia where he has a home and studio.

Alexis-Marie Chute

Alexis Marie Chute is a distinguished writer, artist, photographer, and filmmaker. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Design from the University of Alberta, Canada, and studied at Media Design school in Auckland, New Zealand. She graduated valedictorian with her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, USA.

Jeff Collins

Jeff Collins is a fixture in the Edmonton arts scene. He has been painting for more than 18 years and has developed an extensive body of landscape and abstract work. He has exhibited widely in Alberta and has a long history of involvement in Edmonton’s arts community, helping to establish ArtsHab 1 and its gallery, as well as working with the Alberta Craft Council, the Works Art and Design Festival and more.

Louise Cook

Louise Cook was born in 1943 in Fir Ridge, Saskatchewan.  Inspired by Saskatchewan’s landscape, Louise has been painting for over 30 years. For nearly 40 years, she has shared her passion for the prairies in her paintings. Whether it is the vast open fields or rugged northern forests of Saskatchewan, Louise is compelled to explore each of these areas in her work. Louise creates colourful, moving landscapes in oil and watercolour. Her perspective as a painter is that of a city dweller attempting to keep in tune with her rural roots. She is truly one of Saskatchewan’s finest landscape painters.
