Overview

This exhibition explores Western art produced in the foothills of Southern Alberta. Traditional, popular subject are seen in tandem with contemporary and Indigenous perspectives on the visual language of the west. The genre of Western art that emerged from settler responses to place and landscape, is set in a wider frame. Looking at the work of two or three generations of artists who have lived along the Cowboy Trail highlights the difficulty of seeing this particular place from within and without the genre's conventional forms of representation. "Refocus Foothills” features works on loan from the Alberta Foundation of the Arts, Glenbow Museum, Stockmens Memorial Foundation and private collections. Brian Rusted and Katherine Ylitalo guest curated this exhibit of seldom seen art representing almost a century of work.
