Banff Canadian Rockies

There’s a reason everybody’s heard of Banff. The mountain town's got a lot to love: historic charm, super beautiful natural surroundings, and all the amenities you could ask for. Hit the shops and restaurants on Banff Avenue and try gravy-smothered poutine while wearing your new favourite moose T-shirt. Then, after a day of ice-walking, skiing or sightseeing in the Rockies, visit a brewpub or distillery for a drink and a bison burger. You've earned it. ● Must-See: That castle across the river? That’s the historic Fairmont Banff Springs. Explore the hotel's history and hauntings before treating yourself at the amazing thermal spa. ● Rise Up: Ride the Banff Gondola for an unbeatable mountaintop view.

SHEILA KERNAN - big stories

Banff, Alberta
2018-04-28 to 2018-04-28 MST

Come visit the Canada House to see the beautiful work of Sheila Kernan. Her series of five 3-dimensional paintings was inspired by the idea of providing an immersive experience for the viewer. The idea popped into her head while reading a children’s pop-up book to her 6-month-old son. Loving the interactive experience for the viewer, she wanted to find a way to work it into her process. Deconstructing and reconstructing her process in a new and exciting way she created hand drawn laser cut aluminum stencils which are then painted and mounted onto paintings. The result is a sculptural painting. The sculptural component is subtle from a distance and as you approach the paintings the 3-dimensional quality becomes more apparent. Join them for the Artist Reception Saturday! Everyone is welcome!
