February 19, 2019 - Beautiful Belcourt

If you look up Pointillism art, you're going to find a lot of work by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac; today we're looking at work by a modern Canadian artist Christi Belcourt.  She is a Canadian Métis artist, known for her pointillist work that depicts floral patterns inspired by Métis and First Nations historical beadwork art. Today is an exciting opportunity to try your hand at pointillism and have a look at our exhibit Hiding in Plain Sight: Discovering the Métis Nation in the Archival Records of Library and Archives Canada!

note: this activity is listed as "Pointillist Bead Work: Inspired by Christi Belcourt" in our printed calendar of events.

For more information please contact the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery's Front Desk at 403.309.8405.

ART in the AM is a program of the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery which was developed in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories - Red Deer Office.

It is generously sponsored by Rotary Club of Red Deer.
