Grace Ivers featured artist for March

The month of March at Cranbrook Arts features our local long-time artist Grace Ivers.

Grace started painting as a child in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She continued to learn on her own until she had the opportunity to attend the Banff School of Fine Arts in 1967.

Grace moved to Calgary where she put the paints away and took up pottery and then after a move to Fairmont Hot Springs, some 10 years later, helped to create the Fairmont Arts and Craft Guild.

Since retiring in Cranbrook, Grace has gone back to her canvasses and takes great pleasure in painting when and what she wants. She is inspired by mountains and trees and so you will find them in the majority of her paintings exhibited at the Cranbrook Arts Gallery for the month of March.

There will be an Open House, where you can meet Grace, on March 10, from 2-4 p.m. at 1013 Baker Street.

Also, in March is another Mixed Media Workshop with Tara Mercer (March 3) at the Cranbrook Arts Gallery. Tara’s workshops are always popular.

Spring Break ‘Art for Kids’ runs from March 20 – March 29. This year Colleen is planning Fimo sculptures, wet felting, papier-mache, painting and beading. Each day has a different theme, so please call for details. We can be reached at 250-426-4223.

Our March painting workshop with John de Jong is sold out already, but we are planning another one right away, so please contact us to get on the list. Our email is [email protected].
