Current Show at the Central Library
This month we feature the work of Elsie Stein at the Central Library. Stein graduated from Alberta College of Art, after which she continued her art education with courses in drawing, watercolour & printmaking with Stan Perrot, Dirk Van Wyck, Dare More and others. She participated in the Emma Lake Artist Workshop and was a board member of the Muttard Gallery Advisory Board, the Okotoks Cultural Advisory Board and chairman of Visual Arts at the Okotoks Arts Council.
Artist Statement: My career as an artist has evolved from painting “as you see it” to a semi-abstract minimal manner referring to nature, remembering form and colour. This is most fulfilling for me as my creativity, imagination and originality draw more on what is in me, resulting I hope, in more “mood” rather than strict representation."
