There's a new exhibition in the Western GM Gallery at the Badlands Community Facility.
The East Central Alberta juried artists exhibit was put together by the Alberta Society of Artists, for whom Lind Craddock is the Provincial Exhibitions Chair.
"We would like to draw in more people from the outlying areas of Alberta, so we created the Best of East Central exhibition and asked people within a certain radius to apply," she explained. "It was an opportunity for them to get their work out, possibly people that don't usually get their work out into the public."
"We're a not for profit charitable organization and our mandate has to do with art education and professionalism in the arts," she outlined. "We really do wantt to get more people, more artists, to engage in public art on a more professional level; that's what we do."
Craddock was happy to come to the Canadian Badlands because of the many local talented arists and the incredible subject matter.
"It's such a beautiful landscape for one thing," she raved. "Most of the work here is landscape, with the exception of a couple of more abstract ones, but most of it is landscape, not surprizingly."
The Best of East Central exhibition opened on Saturday at the BCF and will be here through June 29.
