Arts & Performing Arts Culture, Heritage & Arts

You know that feeling that makes your heart swell when the orchestra hits a sweet, sad note? Or when contemplating an artistic masterpiece, the humbling sense that you're in the presence of greatness? Or the terror you feel for the protagonist being stalked onstage? Savor these deliciously extreme emotions when you immerse yourself in the local arts and performing arts scene. Exhibitions and live performances are richly diverse, from contemporary to timeless classics, at indoor and outdoor venues alike. Browse the art galleries and studios, take in a play or spend the evening at the symphony, the opera or the ballet. The artist in you will rejoice.

Painted Land, White Pine Pictures

Jasper, Alberta
2017-08-05 to 2017-08-05 MST

Past meets present in a film that is evocative in approach, energized by breathtaking cinematography and an uplifting musical score, and offers a new and articulate voice to the artists who were the Group of Seven. Painted Land weaves seamlessly the experiences of Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, Franklin Carmichael and A.J. Casson – with the adventures of three modern day sleuths. Historian Michael Burtch, and the writer and photographer team of Gary and Joanie McGuffin are determined to track down the precise locations of these famous paintings. Archival film, letters, journals and photographs of the artists – some of which have never been seen in public – take the viewers back in time. This film weaves this history with a modern day adventure, up mountains, down canyon rivers and over portages with our trio as they try to achieve their own personal quest: to actually ‘walk in the Group of Seven’s footsteps’.
