Burnt Trees Photo and Design Exhibit

The closing reception was a big success. Thanks for everyone who came out to support it!

The Burnt Trees Project is a visual documentation of photographs, design and installation showing the lifelessness and regrowth since the 2005 fire in Kootenay National Park. The destruction along Highway 93 inspired an awareness for how interesting damaged trees could be. The images produced in our 4 season collective reveals a panorama, depictions of new growth and the surrounding landscapes.

Tuscany LRT Public Art Project

We are excited to be working with the City of Calgary Public Art Department to video the installation of ‘roger that’. A two, 12 metre-high sculptures, situated on either side of Crowchild Trail. The video will document the process and will include an interview with the artist, Bill Pechet.  “Bill is the lead artist at PECHET Studio, an interdisciplinary practice based in Vancouver, Canada. In all their work, they are committed to developing environments that bridge art and imagination with everyday life, and they are dedicated to the idea that public space must be designed to offer a depth of experiential and playful encounter.” (City of Calgary/Public Art).
