The Group Art Show

Back in May I attended an art show from The Group, and thought I’d interrupt all of the Viking posts with a quick post about the show!

From their Facebook page:

“The Group Artist Society of Calgary has been active in the Calgary region for over forty years. It is comprised of a small group of talented artists working in many mediums. The Group produces two art shows per year.”

As a funny personal note, my mum and dad used to go to The Group art shows before I was born and when I was an infant – the home I grew up in is filled with artwork from artists from The Group!

There were a few pieces that I really liked, in particular the watercolours by artist Peter Thompson, along with an artist who was working with oil on copper, and one specific oil piece.

Bottom right: The Aspens by Sandra Kosyk Oil on copper

I took photos just to remind me of the pieces I liked. Fortunately Peter Thompson has a great website, however I wasn’t able to find much for Sandra or Reina (perhaps the tag was written in error?) so if you happen to have websites for the two other artists, please leave their URLs in the comments below!

    Hi Dawn,

    I’m so sorry to contact you here in your blog, but I have no idea what your e-mail is. I saw your post about seeing Green Tea Kit Kats (Matcha flavored) in a small Asian grocery store in Calgary? Can you please tell me where? I’m in Calgary and desperately need them for a gift VERY soon! E-mail me please or reply here. I appreciate it!

      HI Wendy,
      I found them at a small grocery that has since moved (and is about triple the size!). They’re now located at the corner of 17th avenue and 37th street SW (where Bockbuster video used to be). However… I was there a few weeks ago, and I didn’t see any – and I don’t remember the shop’s name which would make it hard to call and ask if they have any in stock. Sorry, and good luck!
