OPENING RECEPTION SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18TH, 2015 AT 2PM
An accomplished printmaker and renderer of superb drawings (coloured pencil, pen & ink, oil) this exhibition highlights the work of Westergard's 35 year artistic practice in Red Deer. A practice defined not only by a high degree of technical ability and craft but also by its wit, humour and appreciation for the strange, the uncanny and the downright ridiculous. Through his individual works and book illustrations, Jim is at times a raconteur, at others, a playful dispenser of images that fool the eye.
Opening reception details: Sunday, October 18th at 2PM, you are invited to start at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery to hear an artist and curator talk, then allow yourself the opportunity to view the imaginative artworks around you and chat with Westergard . From here, for those interested, we will walk to the White Gallery on Ross Street and enjoy some tasty hors d'oeuvres inspired by Westergard's work, courtesy of the Coconut Room.
